PHAdvocates and Community Advocates demand Oakland use soda tax funds for programs and education
May 5, 2017 Public Health Advocates

On May 2, Public Health Advocates joined advocates at Oakland City Hall to demand that Oakland keep faith with voters and direct soda taxes to programs and education in neighborhoods most impacted by diabetes. Between now and June 30, we will be fighting for a plan that reflects the will of Oakland voters, including appointing an advisory council to make recommendations for how soda tax funds will be spent.
