Meet with your local Senate and Assembly members and make your voice heard. If you would like to attend and/or register for Lobby Day please click here.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest: Nearly 400,000 suffer from sudden cardiac arrest each year. And almost 90% don’t survive.
But we have the power to change that by teaching our students CPR before graduation. Bystander CPR can double or triple survival from cardiac arrest. Training of all students before graduation will add a million trained rescuers to the population every few years - making it more likely someone will be ready to help you or a loved one.
In New York, along with advocates like you in our You’re the Cure Network, we are working to pass legislation that would provide all students learn CPR and how to use an AED before they graduate high school. To make it a reality, we need you.
Help us call on lawmakers to enact lifesaving legislation.
