Take Action

Join us in educating our legislators on important immunization and health issues that are affecting Nevada. Raising our voices together helps our message be heard, and leaders are more likely to listen!

SIGN-ON OPPORTUNITY
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and other stakeholders are circulating national sign-on letters asking Congressional leadership to bring S. 1112/H.R. 1318 to a vote in honor of Mother's Day. The Preventing Maternal Deaths Act (H.R. 1318) and Maternal Health Accountability Act (S. 1112) would authorize new funding at CDC to support the development and continuing operations of state maternal mortality review committees. You can read the House letter here and the Senate letter here. To sign, please fill out this form. Deadline, May 10th.
