Become an Online Advocate
The Grassroots Action Center is a quick online tool that makes reaching lawmakers, public health officials and the media easier than ever. More than 7,200 people have used our site to send nearly 29,500 messages to America's thought-leaders. This time- and energy-saving tool will be especially important during the public awareness campaign as we work to reach various audiences with information about CFS. You can help us generate a groundswell of support for increased research, awareness and understanding of CFS.
The Grassroots Action Center sends out Action Alerts to listserv subscribers when new CFS information is available and at times when influencing legislators can make a critical difference. Subscribers can immediately respond to these Action Alerts by sending ready-made messages to their legislators or to other influential policymakers via e-mail. We have already written letters for you, but there is space for you to customize each e-mail. Adding something about your personal experience with CFS provides compelling evidence that this illness warrants more attention.
The Grassroots Action Center also allows you to create custom e-mails on any topic at any time. So you don’t have to wait for an Action Alert to write to your local media or state representatives.
