While some State employees may not be able to advocate in their position as a State employee, all individuals can advocate on their own time. This can be done as simply as providing comments to your representative or senator via his or her website. To find contact information for your U.S. Representative, click here. To find contact information for your U.S. Senators, click here. E-mail, fax and phone are the best ways to communicate with your representatives and senators, as mail has to be screened and processed, which delays the mail.
Enlist others to support issues, such as: individuals with TBI and their families, state affiliates of BIAA, Developmental Disabilities planning council, Centers on Independent Living, and P&A. Other health and disability organizations and coalitions may also be able to help. Feel free to share Action Alerts, Capitol News and any other NASHIA publication that may be of assistance to engage in this endeavor.
