Advocacy & Awareness

Advocacy & Awareness

The Amputee Coalition helps bring together and amplify the voice of people affected by limb loss and limb difference.

Making sure our legislators and insurance policymakers are educated about the needs of the community is an important part of our mission. We partner with other organizations to bring you the tools you need to understand and address a broad range of issues including adequate and affordable prosthetic coverage with insurance, Medicare/Medicaid, and other programs, reasonable travel procedures for amputees, inspiring action to support the community through Limb Loss Awareness Month, and supporting research initiatives for people living with limb loss. We also build partnerships with the Administration for Community Living (ACL), the Veterans Administration (VA), the Department of Defense (DOD), and other Federal agencies, as well as with other disability groups and organizations that serve as allies.

Everything you do makes a difference and turns up the volume!

Plan on attending our webinars on Telling Your Story and Limb Loss Awareness Month, consider joining us in Washington DC on April 25 and 26 to meet with legislators – and be sure to Show Your Mettle on April 29!
