Meet Your Member of Congress this Summer!

July 17th, 2014 | Author: Aimee Bulthuis

It’s that time of year again—August District Visits! Each August Congress takes its annual recess to return to their districts and meet with constituents, providing us with a great opportunity to raise awareness for Alpha-1 and COPD and start building a relationship with your member of Congress.

This year is unique because it’s a mid-term election year, meaning 1/3 of the Senate and all House of Representative members are up for election. This is a great chance to have your voice heard and help us change our nation’s health policies.

The COPD Foundation will help you in every way we can: scheduling the meeting, locating others to participate with you, providing talking points, mailing you leave behind packages, but we really depend on your involvement to make these meetings a success. To get involved please contact Rebecca Rudolph either by email, rrduolph@copdfoundation.org or by phone 866.731.2673 ext 451.
