Become an Advocate
View the bills that PBSA is tracking.
The involvement of members is vital to the success of our grassroots efforts. To make a difference, you have to make your voice heard. We encourage all PBSA members to use the information provided on the Legislative Action Center to take an active role in addressing the issues facing screening. We also encourage participation in PBSA Advocacy Day.
Download the 2021 Advocacy Toolkit containing material to assist PBSA members in developing strategies to educate legislators on topical issues affecting screening.
PBSA is also looking for one or two individuals within each state wiling to be State Captains who can organize a call or discussion with all of the state’s volunteers. While legislation that requires action is not frequent, it is typically an urgent matter and will require the volunteers to organize on short notice. View the PBSA Grassroots Description and Memo to learn how you can make an impact in your state. If you are interested in becoming a State Captain, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
