State Advocacy Tools

If you/your chapter would like to become more involved in advocacy but feel you do not have adequate resources or time to do so, the ACP Washington, DC office can help you/your chapter with the services below:

  • Assist with developing issue briefs on ACP priority issues to be sent to state legislators, governors, or policy staff members.
  • Assist in setting up meetings with your state’s governor.
  • Help identify key health care committee members of your state legislature.
  • Provide talking points for letters-to-the-editor or op-eds for local media.
  • Assist in providing resources on ACP’s issues for use at the state level.
  • Provide tips for beginning to build an effective state-based grassroots network.
  • Help with coalition building or political fundraisers.

If you are interested in any of these services, please work through your ACP chapter/governor to let them know of your interest in advocating on a specific issue.

For more information or assistance with any of the item(s) listed, please contact Shuan Tomlinson in the ACP Washington Office at stomlinson@acponline.org.
