On Wednesday, our first R.A.I.S.E. Day, epilepsy advocates will be “walking the Halls of Congress” in Washington, DC to raise epilepsy awareness and asking members of Congress to join their colleagues in co-sponsoring House Resolution 298 (RaisingAwareness and Insight on Seizures and Epilepsy).
LET'S MAKE WEDNESDAY A BANNER DAY FOR EPILEPSY! WE HOPE TO REPORT BY WEEK'S END THAT WE HAVE AT LEAST ONE NEW SPONSOR FROM YOUR STATE!
You can participate locally! This week many members of Congress will be in their local district and it only takes a few minutes to make a call to your district office, or send a letter to your Member.
Currently we have 58 co-sponsors and our goal is to have 100 co-sponsors by the Fourth of July! And we hope to have at least two RAISE co-sponsors from each state.
We plan to establish frequent RAISE Days between now and July 4th and look forward to sharing our progress with you.
You can read more about the R.A.I.S.E. resolution and R.A.I.S.E. activities.
