#MEAction’s US Congress project involves a team of dedicated volunteers and staff and thousands of constituents working to achieve these goals:
* #MEAction typically uses the term Myalgic Encephalomyelitis but uses the term ME/CFS for Congressional communications. Congress is more familiar with the term ME/CFS and it is also the wording used by national agencies (such as the NIH and CDC) with whom Congress interacts.
To get involved with Congressional advocacy, you can (1) participate in the current actions below and/or (2) contact email@example.com
Did you participate in a recent congressional call-to-action? Did you hear back from your elected official? Please fill out this form to tell us about it. The information you provide will help us improve our overall strategy. If you have questions you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have created a comprehensive toolkit for undertaking congressional advocacy. Use these tools to “go deeper” into advocacy work, especially if you are getting ready to set up a meeting with a Congressional office. (Note, you don’t need to read this manual in order to participate in our calls-to-action above.) Each chapter has links to many other resources to help you. Some examples from the toolkit:Read the Toolkit
If you need support for an upcoming meeting or call with Congress, want to know about previous contacts with your members of Congress, or have a question, we’re here to help. Contact us at email@example.com and someone from our team will be in touch.
