NAHC Summer Backyard Advocacy Bash is Back!

August marks the beginning of the annual Summer congressional recess and NAHC’s Summer Backyard Advocacy Bash is back and in full force!

Your elected officials will be in their local home offices, right in your own backyard for the next serval weeks, and we want you to engage with them about our key legislative and regulatory priorities.

Advocacy starts at home with you! You are first-hand experts on the issues and opportunities affecting the home care and hospice communities.

NAHC will be highlighting ONE activity each week that you, your colleagues, family and friends, can take part in to make some noise with your elected officials to ensure the home care and hospice communities have the tools and resources necessary to continue to provide much needed home-based care and community services across the nation.

To kick off our Summer of Backyard Advocacy, we are asking you to harness The Power of One!

  1.  Visit the NAHC Legislative Action Center
  2. TAKE ACTION on ONE Key ISSUE
  3. Then, forward the link to ONE other person and ask them to do the same. 

Together, we can ensure the home care and hospice communities have the support, resources, and protections they need to care for the nation’s most vulnerable during the public health emergency and beyond!
