NAHC Summer Backyard Advocacy
August 2020

June 20th marks the official start of Summer and The National Association for Home Care & Hospice Summer Backyard Advocacy Campaign.

Never has there been a more important time to communicate with your elected officials, telling them about our key legislative priorities and asking for their support for our workers out on the front lines.

Advocacy starts at home with you, your staff, patients and families. You are first-hand experts on the issues and opportunities affecting home-based care and services and your representatives need to hear from you!

Each week NAHC will also be highlighting one activity you can take part in to make some noise with your elected officials, and ensure the home care and hospice communities have the support, protections, and resources needed during the public health emergency and beyond.

We need your Voices, Hearts, and Actions more than ever before.
