Advance and Defend Wellness

Even as we advance wellness in California, we also must defend wellness in our state and across the nation.

 


How Do You Advance and Defend Wellness?

Cal Wellness is committed to addressing the needs of the most vulnerable in California. Where you live, your race, your income – these things should not determine your ability to be healthy and well. Our mission to improve the health and wellness of Californians remains vitally important, particularly as the social and political landscape changes dramatically in our state and across the nation. Government is an essential partner in this work, and we’re committed to working alongside our partners to hold leaders accountable for doing their part in advancing wellness for people in our state. How do you Advance and Defend Wellness? Join in the discussion with the hashtag #AdvanceAndDefend on Twitter and other social media platforms.
