Episode 223: Advocacy & Purpose - an Event to Celebrate the First Birthday of Advocacy Express
By advocating for the community, you can shortcut your healing journey by developing tools to advocate for yourself
Elected officials from around the United States joined leading Lyme disease advocates to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Advocacy Express which flipped over 40 representatives to now support Lyme legislation!
Tune in to listen to Brookhaven Town Councilwoman Jane Bonner (Long Island, New York), Brookhaven Town Councilman Kevin LaValle (Long Island, New York), New York State Assemblyman Steve Englebright, and Michigan State Representative Karen Whitsett
These elected officials share their personal Lyme experiences, what they’ve done to help the Lyme community, and how you can personally advocate for Lyme disease to your elected representatives
This discussion is followed up with a question-and-answer session from members of the Lyme community before concluding with a patient advocate discussion with Matt Sabatello and Rich Johannesen from Tick Boot Camp, Ali Moresco, Jenny Buttaccio, and Jennifer Hoffmann.
Advocacy Express is a platform that enables you to magnify your voice to your representatives. Ali Moresco founded Advocacy Express to automate Lyme disease advocacy by systematically mailing letters written by policy experts to your elected officials for the cost of a stamp.
If you would like to hear from elected officials who have personally been impacted by tick-borne illness and learn a variety of ways you can advocate for the Lyme community, then tune in now!
