Will Massachusetts continue to lead the nation?

We are the first state to have same sex marriage -- and it's going to stay that way. We passed a tobacco tax through a voter referendum, and we got tobacco smoke out of 100% of our workplaces including restaurants and bars. Now the Massachusetts Public Health Association and its allies (long, long list in the link) are fighting to stop poisoning our school kids with sugary soda and junk "food." (Link is a PDF.)

We know the "food" industry will fight this with tooth, nail, lies and a storm surge of their ill-gotten dollars. Help MPHA fight back.
