Advocacy Day Constituent Call Script

Thank you for calling your Senators and Representative in Washington as part of our LUNG FORCE Advocacy Day 2020! We have two asks for Congress this year:

  1. Please ensure current healthcare protections, including those for people with pre-existing conditions, continue; and
  2. Please provide vital funding for the National Institutes of Health.

In order to maximize the effectiveness of your calls, please call on Wednesday, March 25.

NOTE: You can find the name and phone number of your representative with our Find Your Legislator tool. Enter your ZIP code, and on the page that comes up next, click “expand” to pull up full contact information for each member. Please only call the office of the two Senators and one House member that represent your state and congressional district (three calls total).

Recognizing that members may not have staff answering the phone in their offices, please be sure to leave a message.
