Stand Up to Infertility through Advocacy Day
Infertility can feel like an isolating experience—but the truth is, there are lots of women and men out there in the same boat as you. Now, you can take your experience out of the shadows and make your voice heard through RESOLVE’s Advocacy Day 2014.
Advocacy Day, which takes place May 7 in Washington, D.C., is an annual event where anyone who has been affected by infertility can come together in our nation’s capital and talk to members of Congress about important issues in the community. It is a chance to make your voice heard, raise public awareness about infertility, and potentially influence policy makers on legislation regarding family building!
There are many ways you can get involved. RESOLVE will schedule your appointments for you and you will receive training beforehand, which will include in-depth information on the issues and key talking points for the appointments, as well as a packet of materials. Don’t worry if public speaking isn’t your thing. You can either meet one-on-one with a legislator, or be placed in a larger group, where only one person will serve as the speaker.
If you’re still on the fence, here are some great reasons to sign up for Advocacy Day:
- You get to stand up for yourself and others struggling with infertility.
- You’ll foster relationships with key lawmakers who will decide on future infertility-related legislation.
- You’ll feel empowered that you’re making a difference for those diagnosed with infertility.
- You can meet and form relationships with other people with infertility.
