Shot@Life and the global vaccine community will be celebrating World Polio Day on October 24th! We’ve witnessed a 99.9% drop in the disease since 1989, but we need your help to go the last mile.
To commemorate this important day and to ensure our members of Congress know global childhood vaccines are a priority, we are asking you to join us for a National Call-In day on October 24th. While both House and Senate FY18 bills fund the immunization accounts at the levels we requested, it is still important for members to make their support known if these two bills go through the conference committee and reconciliation process later this year. By contacting our Congressional leaders on the same day, we can maximize our collective impact in our Race to Erase polio.
Follow these three easy steps:
1. Call the Capitol Hill main phone number at 202.224.3121 and ask to be connected to your Senator or Representatives office.
2. Tell the staffer who answers the phone that you have an opinion on global health and foreign aid.
3. Use our talking points to deliver the message.
4. Don’t forget to let us know after you have completed your calls by reporting your actions on the Champion Community or emailing me at email@example.com.
You can find your members of Congress here.
