Prevent Blindness America is ramping up our advocacy efforts for 2010, starting with you at home. In honor of the President’s Day holiday on February 15, we are asking you, our vision advocates, to reach out to your Congressional representatives and request a meeting to share your story with your Member. We have created a template letter here to assist you in requesting a meeting with your representative in the local district office.
Not sure what to say? Prevent Blindness America has put together a list of tips, tricks, and talking points here. Please help us by using your voice to inform your representatives of the eye and vision health issues that can affect us all. Contact your local Prevent Blindness America affiliate to get more involved in advocacy efforts in your state. You can also contact us at Prevent Blindness America (1-800-331-2020) if you have any questions!
