Join thousands of committed Berkeleyans in standing up to the soda industry and supporting the soda tax on this November's ballot. The link between sugary drinks and diseases like diabetes is undeniable, and the CDC now projects that 1 of every 3 kids will get diabetes in their lifetimes unless we do something about it. The tax will be a huge step forward for children's health, and is endorsed by prominent organizations and individuals across Berkeley - the NAACP, Latinos Unidos, the Berkeley Federation of Teachers, Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, and many more.
The soda industry targets their marketing towards children, and disproportionately, children of color, because Big Soda - like Big Tobacco before it - knows that their future profits rely on it. Berkeley will be a leader in taking back the health of the nation from Big Soda when we pass this soda tax this November.
Join this winning movement. We need your vote, your donations, your volunteerism, and your voice asking friends and neighbors to support us.
