A couple of links came to my attention this week with regard to legislative advocacy tools from other organizations.
From AWHONN (Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses), there is a new Legislative Handbook available. (Do be aware that AWHONN isn’t homebirth friendly.) "The new and improved Legislative Handbook is now available online at the AWHONN website. This resource provides you with helpful information to understand how the government works and advocacy tips for both the state and federal levels. This is now available to anyone, so feel free to share it with fellow AWHONN leaders, members, or colleagues."
Click here to access the new handbook.
Families USA: The Voice for Health Care Consumers also seems to have a wealth of tools available online for advocates.
