The Alliance for a Healthy Tomorrow (AHT) is a coalition of organizations—organizational membership is the basis for its democratic decision-making structure. Individuals are also critical to the strength of the coalition and support the coalition through a vital activist network and expert advisory committees.
When an organization joins it means:
Agreement with the coalition goals, values and principles as described on the About Us page.
We ask each organization’s decision-making body to review the website (or our founding brochure, “Creating a Healthy Tomorrow”) and decide if you have basic agreement. On the back cover of the brochure and on the About Us page you will find the key policy principles that we will seek to turn into concrete action, laws, policies and regulations. You may also want to review AHT’s initiatives and campaigns, designed to reach these goals. This coalition was created to make a critical change in the world by exerting the power of mobilized citizens from all walks of life.
Demonstration of support for the AHT coalition goals.
The organization agrees that its name can appear on a list of AHT coalition membership —the membership list is shown to policy makers as a show of support for the coalition goals.
Your organization can lend support to the efforts of AHT by appearing on the membership list. We seek a wide diversity of supporting organizations.
Information and optional participation.
Member organizations select a contact person(s) for the coalition. That person will receive limited (averages to once every week or two) notices of campaign activities and needs. Participation of your organization’s members is optional, but will give us the people power to win.
A vote in the coalition
Member organizations elect a Governing Board for the coalition that makes all major decisions on policy and implementation. In addition, any major new campaigns are sent to the membership for comment before the Governing Board makes its decisions. Any member organization can be nominated to send a representative to the Governing Board.
How to Join:
If your organization would like to become a member of the Alliance for a Healthy Tomorrow, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the name of the organization, a brief description, and the name and contact information for the person that we should be in touch with. We will review your request and get back to you shortly. There is no fee for joining.
Individuals can be active in the coalition through the Healthy Tomorrow Network:
AHT needs thousands of individuals to participate in its campaigns in order to win new state policies. Individuals are recruited from AHT member organizations and from the public in general. Regular updates are sent to an email activist list with key new information or requests for assistance. Join the AHT Network as an individual.
