THANK YOU TO THE PHILADELPHIA MAYOR & COUNCIL

Help us tell the Philadelphia Mayor and City Council we are grateful for their historic vote for Pre-K & public health!

Sign this letter and we will deliver it to them on your behalf:

Thank you Philadelphia Mayor and City Council for your historic vote to provide much-needed revenue for universal pre-kindergarten with a tax on sugary drinks. It will also go to helping rebuild parks and recreation centers while addressing city budget issues. As the first big city to adopt a tax on sweetened drinks, you are paving the way for communities across the country to build on the powerful combination of well-targeted investment and people-first policy. You stood up to more than $5 million worth of beverage industry pressure in order to do the right thing for the long-term health and life chances of Philadelphia kids. We commend and congratulate Mayor Jim Kenney and the courageous members of the City Council for their vision and fortitude.
