Take action and Contact your Governor NOW! We’ve submitted gubernatorial proclamation requests to all 50 states once again this year. Over the past two years we’ve received 42 gubernatorial proclamations and Washington, D.C., recognizing Limb Loss Awareness Month. Some of the eight states we don’t have proclamations for, have indicated the proclamation has been signed, but we have not received the proclamation at this time. Help us get all 50!
What are advocates for the limb loss community doing during Limb Loss Awareness Month, and how can you get involved?
Several states are looking to introduce fair insurance access for prosthetic devices legislation, (aka prosthetic parity), during Limb Loss Awareness Month, and raise and discuss issues with legislators that the limb loss community faces on a daily basis. In addition to introducing legislation, several state advocates are looking to meet with legislators to simply discuss limb loss and limb difference, and raise awareness of the limb loss community to legislators and the broader community.
