RESOLVE ~ The National Infertility Association - Advocacy Day
Resolve - The National Infertiltiy Association's Advocacy Day
I'm really excited to share information here from Resolve - The National Infertility Association. While each of us has to find our own path when it comes to infertility, there is much that we have in common. One thing that we have in common is that we do not need to travel that path alone. There is help. Resolve helps. And when we put our voices together, we help one another, whether we have ever met personally or not.
If insurance coverage and general understanding of infertility as a medical problem is something that concerns you, please consider how you can help on May 8. If you are able to go, your presence will be deeply appreciated. If you are able to support this effort in another way, that will be most welcome as well.
There are very few things that I have attended or supported in my life that I have felt more proud of then the events like this one in the past that I have gone to. I have seen first hand, through state mandates for infertility coverage to changing language in bills, what using our voices collectively can do.
Me? I'm going to do my best to get there this year. Anyone want to join me? ~ Lisa
It's time for Members of Congress to understand the needs of the infertility community.
Advocacy Day is a RESOLVE event where women and men living with infertility come together in Washington, D.C. to talk to Members of Congress about issues important to our community. RESOLVE holds this annual event so you have a chance to make your voice heard. We will make your appointments for you and provide you with the training and information you need for this day of empowerment. Advocacy Day is a great opportunity to meet RESOLVE leaders and others from the infertility community who want to make a difference.
