Advocacy

Advocacy Matters!
People with brain injury, their loved ones and the professionals that serve them are all uniquely qualified to take effective political action to improve supports and services for people with brain injury and stroke and to help increase prevention. Our most important advocacy strategy is helping Citizen Advocates turn their story into an effective political message they can share with policymakers to create positive change. Please join our advocacy efforts!
