Working to secure access to medically-necessary nutrition for all.
2022 Coalition Action Items:
Action Item #1: Launch a social media campaign using #WhyNow4MNEA
Action Item #2: Please contact Sen. Cassidy’s office to ask that he co-sponsor the bill.
An easy way to do this is to have your government affairs representative send an email to his staff (firstname.lastname@example.org) telling them that your organization, which is a national organization representing people across the country, including Louisiana, is asking him to co-sponsor S. 2013, the Medical Nutrition Equity Act. Please feel free to forward me any response you get from the office. Please DO NOT broadcast Brian’s email to your grassroots. You can also ask your grassroots/constituents in Louisiana to send Sen. Cassidy a message by directing them to https://nutritionequity.sites.pkunews.org/contact-congress/.
Action Item #3: Reach out to key members of Congress – Review the Target List below for instructions.
