Situation Report | March 8, 2021
If you haven’t yet registered for tomorrow’s HCA’s State Advocacy Day, please do so right now by completing the form here.
Lawmakers need to hear from you to understand why they must support home care in the state budget. They also need to know the implications of proposed cuts on the services that you provide in their communities.
Tomorrow’s State Advocacy Day is virtual (on Zoom) but your participation is no less important. In fact, this format compels even more of your staff to participate on March 9 to join forces in our collective advocacy. Join us.
Write Your Elected Officials Now
Have you written your elected representatives yet?
Have you asked your staff to do the same?
If not, please do so now. Our online digital advocacy process takes less than a minute of time to send a pre-written message that you are welcome to customize.
There are many people at your organization who care about the outcome of this year’s state budget, and our collective advocacy requires a response from all of them. Please share our digital messaging campaign and ask your staff to participate.
Take Our Virtual Advocacy Challenge
While tomorrow’s State Advocacy Day is an important gathering, your one-on-one meetings with elected officials further raise the visibility of home care, its value, and why legislators must, in turn, put home care first.
Please schedule a meeting with your Senator and Assembly representatives using the instructions in our Virtual Advocacy Challenge here and enter our drawing to win an Amazon gift card for your efforts.
HCA has some other exciting advocacy initiatives in store, coming soon.
In the meantime, all instructions and resources can be found on our state advocacy page.
