CALL TO ACTION!
After a delay to implement necessary COVID legislation, Congress is now shifting its attention back to Fiscal Year 2021 appropriations and legislative policy matters. It is important to remind your Senators and Congressmen what is critically important to you and the 1 million other people living with Tourette Syndrome or Tic Disorders in the United States.
Even if you sent an action alert for Advocacy Day, we need you to send another letter as soon as possible. Please take a minute to send a letter to your Senators and Representatives (it literally takes a minute).
Also, ask your friends and family to support you by taking a minute to send a letter too!
The more letters that are sent the greater the impact we have… our voice is amplified.

Enter your name and address as prompted. If desired, you can personalize the letter by adding your story and why this is meaningful for you. Then just hit send. It’s that easy and you are increasing awareness and advocacy for Tourette Syndrome and other Tic Disorders.
