| Speak out on Behalf of CF
Become a CF Advocate!
What is CF Advocacy?
Advocacy is giving a voice to cystic fibrosis (CF) in Congress. It’s a way for you to speak out on legislation that impacts CF. Advocacy is one more way that you can make a difference for people with CF and we need your voice.
What is required of me?
Once you sign-up to be an advocate, your commitment is only minutes per year!
How do I sign up?
Simply visit: www.cff.org/GetInvolved/Advocate/GetStarted/ and fill out the registration form under the “My Profile” tab.
What is next?
Less than once a month, you can expect to receive an e-mail alert from the CF Foundation requesting that you contact your member of Congress or U.S. Representative regarding legislation before Congress that impacts CF. The e-mail will contain a link to the CF Foundation’s website that will allow you to submit your electronic correspondence in a matter of minutes. IT’S REALLY THAT EASY! Everything is automated and a standard letter that you can personalize to make your own is provided.
Can I really make a difference?
YES! Every member of Congress has a complex system to track phone calls, e-mails, letters etc. from constituents. The number of communications is very important to members of Congress and the advocacy process. In fact, don’t be surprised if you get a response.
