Advocacy to Legacy

2023 - $10,000

Advocacy to Legacy is an organization that trains community members on how to advocate effectively. This funding will be used to continue advocacy efforts for a “tobacco proximity law,” which aims to ban the sale of tobacco and cannabis products within a certain distance of schools. The organization will use this grant to train youth and community ambassadors and work with other organizations that share the same goals. 

This grant was awarded as part of The Sanford Cloud Awards for Diverse Advocacy, Policy, and Equity, designed to advance health equity for people of color by investing in initiatives led by graduates of the foundation’s Health Leadership Fellows Program and Academy for Health Equity Advocacy and Leadership. The award is named in honor of Sanford Cloud Jr., the foundation’s former board chair.
