the WELL campaign


Show your support for the WELL Campaign!

Our children are in crisis. At a time when federal policies to support children’s health are being rolled back, taking action has never been more important. One in 5 students faces a serious mental illness in a given year, while 1 in 6 New York children struggles with hunger, and almost 1 in 3 is overweight or obese. School districts need adequate tools and resources to address the health of ALL students.

Take action today! Please sign our petition urging the Governor and legislature to support our students by:

  • Creating a New York model wellness policy

  • Investing $21 million to improve and implement school district wellness policies for high-needs school districts

With the right state-level resources for school districts we can ensure ALL of New York’s children can learn and thrive.
