Welcome to National Action Week, August 17-21, 2020

We thank all the activists who joined us for the August 11 webinar to prepare for National Action Week. If you missed it, you can watch the recording by clicking the image above or by visiting LE&RN's Youtube channel.

What's next:

  1. During LE&RN's National Action Week (August 17-21), call and/or email your Congressional Representatives (two US Senators from your state as well as your Congressperson). You can find contact information as well as call scripts and email content here. The most important thing is to tell your lawmaker's office how lymphatic disease has affected you, and that you want your representatives to support the establishment of a National Lymphatic Commission and the inclusion of “Lymphatic Research” in the FY 2021 Department of Defense (DOD) Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP) budget.
  2. Fill out this quick and easy online form to tell us what happened. We will use this information to followup with lawmakers.

That's it! While it may not take a lot of time, the payoff in terms of increased quality of life for all those who live with LE and LD will be enormous. Thank you for joining us in this groundbreaking effort.
