GWL Joins Civic & Government Leaders in Statewide Push for Healthier Neighborhoods

On Monday, February 7th, a diverse coalition of local and statewide organizations from every region of the state will kick off the “Act FRESH Campaign” to improve access to healthy affordable food and public space for physical activity. The group will release a report and public policy agenda entitled Priorities for Healthy Places, 2011-2012 aimed at reducing preventable diseases and containing healthcare costs.

The campaign kickoff, scheduled for 1:00pm in room 222 at the State House, Boston, represents a new chapter in the fight to build vibrant and healthy neighborhoods for all Massachusetts residents. By uniting across geography to focus on comprehensive public policy solutions, the groups seek to both harness and bolster the work being done in neighborhoods from Fall River and Lawrence to Worcester and Holyoke.
