ADVOCACY



We have a long history of advocating for policies that improve the health and well-being of children and young people in California and throughout our nation. More than 90% of the legislation we have supported has passed. And many of the policies that are now in place in the California Department of Education and beyond have resulted from our work and the work of our partners.

We work closely with the California Senate and Assembly and the State Departments of Education and Public Health. We serve on six statewide leadership bodies, including the Legislative Committee for the California Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance; the California Afterschool Network Leadership Team; the After School Advocacy Alliance; the California Department of Education After School Physical Activity Steering Committee, the California Department of Education Afterschool Division Quality Standards Committee and the Distinguished After-School Health (DASH) Recognition Program Advisory Group.

Nationally, we meet regularly with Members of Congress and the U.S. Departments of Education and Health and Human Services and are partners in the First Lady’s Let’s Move/Active Schools Campaign, the President's Challenge Physical Activity and Fitness Awards Program, the Advocacy/Policy Committee of the National Human Services Assembly’s National Collaboration for Youth, Healthy Children and Youth, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, the After School Alliance and the National Afterschool Association.
