Our mission is to protect and expand the right of citizens to have access to alternative medicine, natural treatments, natural nutritional products and to have a toxic free environment.
We are the only citizens’ 501-(C)4, non-profit legislative natural health freedom advocacy grass roots organization maintaining an active presence in the State Capitol. This enables us to:
*focus on California legislative issues, sponsor bills, testify before committees, and monitor the thousands of bills presented each year.
*do advocacy in support of or against Federal Bills, this is important because the California Congressional Delegation is the largest and possible the most influential the nation.
*build support for our legislative goals by maintaining an active involvement with other grassroots organizations that are active in the Capitol.
*sponsor educational workshops in the Capitol for legislative personnel, lobbyists, and leaders of organizations. To provide educational material on a regular bases to key legislatures and their staff.
OUR CALIFORNIA STATE LEGISLATIVE GOALS ARE TO:
*change the existing the very restrictive state laws that limit the right of Californians to have access to safe and effective alternative medicine that is available to citizens in many other states.
*obtain legal clarification for change in the state health codes that prevent physicians from offering safe alternative effective treatment for cancer that is available to citizens in other states.
*challenge and change the biases in the medical community and state codes that prevent or limit licensed midwives from offering their professional services to women in California.
*protect and extend the right of natural health practitioners to offer their professional services in California.
*continue to oppose adding industrial toxic waste productions (fluoridation) to public drinking water.
