Please remember that advocacy is a year-round activity and we hope you’ll consider contacting your legislators throughout the year to make sure that brain injury is at the front of their minds.
There are many ways you can support BIAV’s advocacy efforts:
- Sign up for our e-newsletter if you have not already. As a subscriber to the e-newsletter if a call to action is needed you will be the first to hear!
- Tell your story! Whether you tell it to us , to a local brain injury provider, to a member of the press or the General Assembly (we have provided a sample letter to help you get started), it is the real life day to day struggles and successes that make our needs known and compel people to action!
- Our year-round advocacy efforts take considerable resources. Your generosity will provide us with the personnel to be present at important meetings; if you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu!
Those with brain injury deserve better access to services and supports and you can be a part of changing a community’s destiny. Be informed, ask questions and decide to act; it’s not nearly as hard as you might think it is and your calls, emails and visits to legislators make a difference!
