  • 11. SouthWest Affiliate Advocacy The SouthWest Affiliate and the American Heart Association doesn?t make political contributions. We don?t have a Political Action Committee. But we do have a voice, thanks to our army of volunteers across the state. It?s easy to get involved, it?s easy to take action ? and you might just save lives in the process.
