Help Increase Support for the Lymphedema Treatment Act!

 

Cosponsors are one of the key factors in determining which bills are eventually passed into law. While there is no magic number, the greater our number of cosponsors the stronger our position!

Please help us reach our goal of having a “super majority” level of support (meaning 60% or greater) in both the House and Senate
by taking the following actions:

 

Step #1 – E-mail your Rep & Senators in one easy step – template letter provided, just fill in your name and address and personalize the letter if desired.

Step #2 – Call your Senators – after entering your zip code, talking points, the number to call, and staff member to ask for are provided – in most cases you are simply leaving a message, but this step is so important!

Step #3 – Call your Representative – like calling your Senators, talking points, number to call, and staff member to ask for are provided.

Step #4 – Contact your Rep & Senators Via Social Media – links for accounts and sample tweets and Facebook posts provided.

Step #5 – Attend a District Meeting– find simple instructions on how to schedule, prepare for and conduct your meeting.

Step #6 – Repeat Steps 1 through 4 as needed!  Some offices need little more than to be asked. Others need a lot of education and persuasion from their constituents. Every email, call, post and tweet makes a difference!
