Why Should You Advocate for Kidney Care? To get involved and make a difference! Only one thing can help change the course of this disease, and that is for anyone who is affected by it, whether patient, family member or renal professional, is to get involved. Join us in educating your elected officials and decision makers about how they can help with legislation relating to kidney disease, access to treatment, dialysis, transplantation and organ donation. See kidney and transplant fact sheet.
Champions of Kidney Care
RSN’s Kidney Care Champions goal is to educate elected officials about the issues that have an impact on people living with kidney disease, are on dialysis or have a kidney transplant. That’s where you come in. YOU can make a difference by getting involved and cultivating a relationship with your own representatives and share your experience and knowledge directly to those who are in a position to influence change. We’ll give you all the information and tools you need.
Members of Congress (United States Senators and Representatives) make time for meetings with constituents as part of their duties as elected officials. Face-to-face meetings are one of the most powerful ways to advocate for kidney-related policies, as a meeting makes you and your issue more memorable to legislators. The good news is you can use Zoom!
It is important to know that the staff who work for members of Congress are very important, too! Whether you meet directly with your Senator or Representative or with their staff person, you are taking an important step by building a relationship with them. This makes them much more likely to pay attention when we call or email about a specific issue in the future.
