Summer is coming, and with it come many opportunities to relax and regroup after a busy winter and spring. We hope that you have fun plans with family and friends over the next few months - and as the months pass, we know we will continue to have news within the You're the Cure network.

So: how do we stay in touch?
We'd like to offer a few tried & true tips and tricks that help to continue to hone and sharpen your advocacy skills - without taking too much time out of your busy days.
Tip one: Remember local policy! Within several local and regional municipalities in the Eastern Region, policy campaigns aren't taking a summer break. Be sure to check your email as the days move so that you are always hearing the most up-to-date news about votes, hearings, and other events where we'd love to work with you to share your advocacy voice.
Tip two: Federal Lobby Day will happen this Fall. Soon, we will have finalized our targets for Federal Lobby Day. We will invite advocates within targeted districts to apply to attend this event, and we would don't want you to miss out on joining us in DC!
Tip three: Friends and family may want to help make a difference, too. Think about who invited you to join You're the Cure - or how you came to be one of our very important advocates. There are probably people you know who may want to join the network and be a part of helping to pass lifesaving policy - consider inviting them to join you. They can sign up at yourethecure.org/join.
Julie and I say this all the time, but our advocates help make the biggest difference to lawmakers as we pass policies that improve the health of our communities. Thank you for all that you do - we look forward to continuing to work with you over the summer months!
