The Healthi Kids Coalition, with input from the Greater Rochester Parent Leadership Training Institute Alumni, created a 2019 questionnaire around our advocacy agenda for Whole Child Health. Each candidate for Rochester City Council and School Board was given an opportunity to respond.
The Healthi Kids Coalition is a grassroots community collaboration and initiative of Common Ground Health that advocates for healthier kids in the City of Rochester and Monroe County. Our change agenda calls for every child to be happy, healthy, and supported in the place they learn, for expanded access to services that build healthy minds and healthy families, for our communities to promote equity so that all kids can grow and thrive, and for the promotion of the power of play in the life of every child and in every place.
As a tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, Healthi Kids and Common Ground Health cannot support or oppose any candidate for public office. The purpose of this questionnaire is to inform the community on where each candidate stands on the whole health of children in the City of Rochester.
