Health Centers from Maine to Alaska have been rallying the advocacy troops collecting thousands of health center advocate petition signatures and patient letters in preparation for National Delivery Week, November 7th- 11th. Advocates should remember to contact their Member of Congress immediately to request an in person meeting during Delivery Week so they can hand over all petition and letter materials IN PERSON during the visit. If advocates are unable to get a meeting with their Representative they should plan to schedule a meeting with district staff and conduct the same activities. Don’t forget to reach out to your local Media! Advocates can access Media Templates on the Campaign for America’s Health Centers website including Delivery Week Press Release, Letter to the Editor, Opinion Editorials, and more.
Delivery Week Resources: Petition and Patient Letter templates are available in SPANISH. Visit the Campaign website to access translated templates and other important materials.
