Advocacy & Policy
How You Can Help
Participation in our political process is a privilege and responsibility made even more precious by the realization that your voice could be the only one speaking for millions without a voice of their own.
We rely on supporters like you to help amplify our positions and to carry our messages to policymakers and other influencers by signing petitions, writing to elected officials, and learning more about our issues.
