The House of Representatives adjourned last week for its August Recess and the Senate will adjourn this coming Friday with members of both houses in their home districts through September 8th. The recess period is a great time to build meaningful relationships and voice your priorities to your Members of Congress.
Direct advocacy on key issues is one of the most powerful tools available to you and your agency. The next several weeks provide an ideal opportunity for you to schedule local district meetings with your Members of Congress and invite them to visit your agencies where you can showcase your programs and arrange for conversations with lay leaders, clients, and staff.
We encourage you to ask your Members of Congress to support the following priority issues which are critically important to our agencies, our staff, and clients. We understand that this is a lengthy list of issues and encourage you to select the priorities that are most relevant to your agency. Learn more here and ACT in AUGUST!
