Join the MEHKO Advocacy Cohort

CAMEO and COOK Alliance are seeking community-based organizations to join the MEHKO Advocacy Cohort and advocate for the establishment of a MEHKO program in counties where MEHKOs are not legal.

Cohort members will be trained on an advocacy toolbox to create a MEHKO program in their jurisdictions. Advocacy work will involve engagement with legislators, training new advocates, and more. Participants will receive $5,000 to facilitate their participation.

Applications are due April 15, 2024. For any questions regarding MEHKOs please contact Liza Rivera-Gonzalez.
