UPDATE: We've extended our deadline for submissions to Friday, September 19th, 5:00 pm
WE NEED YOUR VISUAL IMAGES to represent our campaign! Send us your SIMPLE, POWERFUL, and EFFECTIVE images to get our message out and get people to vote yes on Measure D in November. Your work will appear on posters, mailings, social media, and other campaign materials in Berkeley and beyond!
Here’s the message we want to convey:
SUPPORT THE SODA TAX ON THIS NOVEMBER’S BALLOT. The link between sugary drinks and diseases like diabetes is undeniable, and the Centers for Disease Control now projects that 1 of every 3 kids will get diabetes in their lifetimes unless we do something about it. 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. 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, Carole Davis Kennerly, Anna Blythe Lappe, Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, and many more. Berkeley will be a leader in taking back the health of the nation from Big Soda when we pass this soda tax this November.
