I'm supporting the American Heart Association because:
We can save lives.
Women's health is understudied and underfunded, and women with heart disease are often un/misdiagnosed.
People I love have struggled with heart disease.
Local leaders have expressed a need for the AHA and other organizations to embrace intersectionality, to recognize the social production of illness, and to dismantle structures that make people sick and cause premature death.
I want to support my community.
