CPHA Joins in Denouncing Immigration Executive Order

February 6, 2017

On Jan. 27, Trump signed an executive order that would restrict the admission of certain foreign nationals and refugees to the United States under the guise of protecting the nation from foreign terrorists. The Colorado Public Health Association is dedicated to promoting a diverse and culturally inclusive membership, and we have serious concerns about the impacts of the President’s recent actions. CPHA unequivocally believes that our state and country are greatly enriched by the diverse perspectives and experiences of all Coloradans, and CPHA is strongly committed to the inclusion of all of its members.

As stated by APHA, CPHA is also deeply concerned that this executive order will “reduce US science and engineering output by discouraging the best and brightest international students, scholars, and scientists from studying and working, attending academic and scientific conferences, or seeking to build new business in the United States.”

We will continue to welcome all members and also highly encourage everyone to join CPHA in showing our solidarity in the following ways:

February Webinar
February 14, 2017

Description: Join us for a Valentine’s Day discussion about the role of built environment and parks and recreation in public health.  Learn how early forward thinking professionals shaped how we look at nature, parks and physical activity in urban areas, and how these early movements set the stage for linking health to the built environment and public parks and rec. Travel through time, looking through a health equity lens, to our current opportunities to connect and collaborate for viable experiences (i.e. physical activity, nutrition, community gardens, obesity prevention, and shade) for the health of our communities.  What’s not to love?
