Grassroots Advocacy

People sitting at town hall meeting

Our grassroots advocacy starts with YOU—your power to affect positive change at the state and federal levels to introduce and support legislation that will improve the lives of the millions affected by diabetes. When we harness our strength in numbers, we will influence our lawmakers to make insulin and medications affordable, eradicate discrimination in the work and school settings, tackle barriers to inequitable health, and so much more. But we need everyone—people living with diabetes, loved ones, people at risk for developing diabetes, health care professionals, and others impacted by diabetes—to join us!
