ADVOCACY IN ACTION
Climate policy is health policy. VCCA clinicians provide credible, health-based perspectives on climate policy solutions to ensure that policies are made with the health of our citizens and communities as a top priority. During our annual Health and Climate Advocacy Day, dozens of clinicians and health students from across the state gather in Richmond to advocate on behalf of their patients for clean energy solutions. We also provide opportunities throughout the year for our members to engage in advocacy around climate policy solutions.
Congressional proposals on transportation, infrastructure and energy will have a major impact on climate change and on health. Help ensure that the health benefits of climate solutions enacted today are understood by Congress.
