Advocacy

Wed, June 25, 2014 2:55 PM | Tiana Nguyen (Administrator)

Living and working in the District puts us in a very unique situation with great opportunities for advocacy right on our doorstep.  AOTA has some useful tips on how to get involved in advocacy and DCOTA encourages our members to consider reaching out to members of Congress regarding the issues that affect occupational therapy practice in the District and nationally. Members of Congress have reported that face-to-face meetings have the most impact when it comes to hearing from their constituents so consider joining AOTA for Hill Day in September or consider making an individual appointment with a local member of Congress to discuss the issues that are important to you. Please refer to AOTAs “Take Action” page for all the information you need to know about the big issues affecting OT and having your voice heard:
