CONTACT YOUR LOCAL NEWSPAPER OR TV STATION
Your voice has power, but only if you use it!
There have been many success stories from members of our group who gained press coverage by simply taking that first step of emailing or calling their local TV news stations or journalists. In fact, Casey from the New York EndoMarch chapter did just this, when she teamed up with the Endometriosis Foundation of America to organize a successful Yellow TV Brigade (#EFAonToday) event, which made it onto the Today Show. So, it’s definitely worth a shot! Feel free to use any of the supporting materials from this site to help present your story. There are also fantastic downloadable brochures, as well as excellent information, that you might prefer to use from the following organizations* (in no particularly order):

Advocacy Week Committee Member
Our first Advocacy Day (Congressional Luncheon) took place in Washington, D.C., on March 12, 2014. To keep the tradition going, this year a pilot program was launched with Team Virginia as the lead and they organized a successful 2-day trip to Washington, D.C., to meet with their state’s elected officials. Since these programs have proved effective for bringing endometriosis to the attention of elected officials, we’ll continue the tradition for the 2015-2016 season.
