No, this isn’t an extremely lame remake of the 1939 movie starring James Stewart and Jean Arthur. Rather, the purpose of this column is to encourage you to help direct the future of the profession through political action. By visiting your legislators, you can advocate for the important issues that affect not only you professionally, but millions of people with communication disorders. ASHA’s Capitol Hill Visits Program makes it easy to get involved, and I suggest giving it a try the next time you are in Washington, DC.
Here’s how the Program works. The staff at ASHA will brief you on legislative issues that ASHA has identified as important. The staff will also describe the best way to get to Capitol Hill and back. If you would like to meet with your legislators in your home state, the staff can provide you with appropriate materials. The best part is that you will be reimbursed for an extra night’s hotel stay, two meals, and local transportation.
