We have 41 Chapters in the USA. Find your State Chapter and get involved here.

If you’ve never done advocacy or been politically engaged before – don’t worry! Many of our group leaders were in the same position before starting.

What you’ll get:
- support and guidance in your role, including resources and tools for advocacy
- the chance to work towards an action plan and strategy
- the power of a network of others fighting for the same things who can share their experience and support your efforts

We have Chapters in Canada, India, the MENA region, and Zimbabwe, as well as advocates and partners in many other countries around the world. Check out our Global Advocacy Network page to learn more.

We are looking for volunteer professional translators who can help us translate various documents and resources into other languages so that our content is accessible to and useful for as many people as possible. We're creating a bank of volunteer translators who can help us on an ad-hoc basis with anything ranging from a simple 1 page document to a 30 page toolkit.
If you're interested, get in touch and tell us a little bit about your background and/or experience with translation. Professional translation experience is preferred due to the accuracy required for our health advocacy content.
