National Lobby Day, April 12
2010 MN Team with Keith Ellison
2010 MN Team with Keith Ellison
Lobby Day in D.C.  

 

On April 12,
The Emily Program's Dr. Jillian Lampert
and Kitty Westin will lead teams in Washington D.C. in support of the Federal Response to Eliminate Eating Disorders Act (FREED Act).

FREED is
the first eating disorders legislation to comprehensively promote research, treatment, education, and prevention programs - and demonstrate why it is vital in the larger context of health care reform.

Each "team" has made arrangements to meet with specific legislators. This time will be spent advocating for FREED and educating politicians on the importance of education, research, and prevention of eating disorders.

To find out how you can get involved, visit Eating Disorder Coalition
You can take action by writing to your legislators - Use your voice!  Click here to get information and a sample letter.
