Dear Advocate:

After yesterday’s election, there are many questions for the bleeding disorders community.

While we don’t have all of the answers, we understand the concerns many have.

No matter what your politics are, know that HFA is there for YOU — the bleeding disorders community.聽We offer you our reassurance that we will continue to be on Capitol Hill and at state legislative days to make sure your voice is heard, to provide leadership and guidance to our community, and to fight for policies that protect patients鈥 access to care. We are actively watching, listening, and participating in policy work at the state and federal levels on behalf of you.

Our community has a long legacy of grassroots advocacy work. Now is the time for us to show what kind of advocates the bleeding disorders community is made of. In the coming days, being informed, staying involved, and taking action will be more important than ever. We ask that you make a commitment to stand with HFA and when called upon, make your voice heard!

Below are a number of resources to help you become better informed, understand HFA’s policy priorities, and ways to connect with your elected representatives. It takes all of us working together.

Remember, advocacy is in聽YOUR聽blood.
