Advocacy in Missouri

Updated:Jul 14,2017

Heart Disease and Stroke. You’re the Cure.MO Capitol Building

Every day, Americans' lives are touched by heart disease and stroke. Whether it is our own health that is impacted or the lives of family members, friends, or co-workers, there is a lot at stake when it comes to fighting our nation's No. 1 and No. 5 killers. But we all have the power to make a difference by speaking out for policies that help build healthier communities and healthier lives. 

For more than 30 years, You’re the Cure – the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association's grassroots network – has been doing just that. We’re a community of fathers and mothers, neighbors and friends, researchers and caregivers, passionate about an America that’s free of heart disease and stroke. Each day, we work together to advocate for heart-healthy and stroke-smart communities through legislative and regulatory policies in our cities, states and across the country, and we hope you’ll join us!

Changing Communities, Changing Lives

Our website gives you the tools you need to play a crucial role in the fight against heart disease and stroke. You’ll be able to communicate with key legislators, connect with advocates near you, and stay up-to-date on the heart and stroke issues that matter most to you.

You’ll also be able to track your impact at every step. When you speak out, you'll earn points for the activities you participated in, and which help you climb through our advocate ranks. And certain milestones come with badges, showing that you’ve done something truly notable. Learn more about how we recognize you for taking action. After all, this site’s about you! It’s about what matters most to you, how you can make a difference, and how people just like you are forming a community to advocate for a healthier, stronger Missouri.
