WRITE A LETTER
Be part of our Letter Writing Campaign!
Below are step-by-step instructions for contacting your Representative, including a sample lette. You can use the sample letter below verbatim or tailor your letter so that it speaks from your heart, and from your specific connection to Eating Disorders (i.e., I’m a treatment provider, a mom, a friend of someone suffering, etc…). While we encourage you to share why the FREED Act is important to you specifically, we also ask that you stay consistent in the message provided in the sample letter. Your letter should be no longer than one page in length (about 5 paragraphs). Thank you in advance for your participation in and support of our goal to have 1000 voices represented! We can pass the FREED Act with your voice, passion, and commitment.
