  • USE YOUR VOICE: Email, call, show up at meetings. Make noise early and often. Emails work. Phone calls work. Don’t underestimate the power of an email or phone call.
  • JOIN THE MOVEMENT: Download our Social Media Toolkit. Use social media to connect directly with stakeholders. Get on Twitter, Instagram, and spread the world.
  • ASK FOR CHANGE: Send an email. Make a phone call. Show up. A sample email is here. A list of stakeholders contact information is here.
  • GET INVOLVED: We need help! Join the advocate task force. The task force volunteers may help organize meetings, gather information, or more. Apply to be a volunteer. Still want to do more? Email us.
  • TAKE ACTION: You can view and participate in coordinated and time sensitive advocacy alerts by signing up for emails and following us on twitter. You can also participate archived advocacy alerts by clicking here.

Step 3: Contact stakeholders

  • CONTACT ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES: There is nothing more important than asking the government for change. Call, send an email or meet with your elected representatives and their Health Policy staff and ask them for change today. Ask for a meeting!
  • CONTACT PUBLIC HEALTH LEADERS: Contact these key stakeholders in public health to ask them to prioritize Herpes cure, treatment and prevention. Ask for a meeting!
