AHF Advocacy

Advocacy at AHF has been pushing the boundaries in the name of basic human rights for over thirty years. It’s as fundamental to our organization as the care we give our patients.

Our campaigns work together to advocate for fundamental human rights that set the tone for health and wellness in the United States and beyond. We fight for lower drug prices, affordable housing, equal access to health care, and so much more. Our campaigns are varied, but they all have one thing in common; fighting for what's right.

It would give prosecutors and law enforcement officials in the state of Georgia important tools to make Georgia safer for everyone.
