2021 Virtual Advocacy Forum was a SUCCESS, and
it is not too late to get involved!
The Amputee Coalition’s virtual Advocacy Forum was held on April 11 and 12, 2021 and had over 900 registrants! If you missed the forum, it is not too late to get involved.
Advocacy is how we improve care for all people living with limb loss and limb difference together.
If you couldn’t attend this year, there are still ways you can engage in our advocacy efforts by participating in our quarterly advocate calls. To sign up or learn more information about how to participate in these calls, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the 2021 forum, attendees learned about how they can advocate with the Amputee Coalition, about our advocacy successes, and our advocacy priorities for 2021. We dove into what it means to be an advocate, how the legislative process works, and provided specific skills to engage lawmakers on our issues to drive change. We also kicked-off our year-round advocacy by taking action together and asking elected officials to support the Triple A Study Act. Both days included time to network, connect, share stories, collaborate, and practice skills together.
Attendees who completed both days of education and training became certified as Lead Advocates with the Amputee Coalition.
Whether you’re new to advocacy and want to get more involved or you’re an Amputee Coalition Lead Advocate looking for the latest policy updates and training, Advocacy Forum is for you!
