The Academy is pleased to provide this member benefit – a Web-based congressional lobbying software tool.
The Advocacy Action Center will:
- Assist you in grassroots lobbying and political advocacy by providing a simple way to contact members of Congress
- Help mobilize Academy members to participate in legislative action alerts and contact US senators and representatives on important health policy issues
- Offer strategic targeting to legislative chambers, congressional committees or individuals
- Provide updated contact information for elected officials
The online Advocacy Action Center will implement a proactive approach to grassroots advocacy built upon a "state of the art," convenient, practical system for communicating with your members of Congress. In addition, it will periodically be used to conduct member surveys.
Using an online database, members will receive "Call to Action" e-mails that will incorporate links to specific issues, alerts, and campaigns. The tool will also provide a means to monitor and record all grassroots activities and expedite Academy efforts to customize congressional communications.
