Brain Injury Survivor Advocacy Program
In August, BIAA launched a pilot program dedicated to encouraging area brain injury survivors to become more effective self-advocates. The program included identifying likely targets, making appointments, participating in a day of meetings in Capitol Hill, and following up and maintaining relationships with Congressional staffters.
Due to the success of the program, BIAA will continue to offer the opportunity on a quarterly basis to survivors who would like to learn more about advocacy. Space is limited, so if you would like to participate and you live in the Washington, DC area, please send me an email so that I can begin assembling the next advocacy group.
