Check out our latest edition of the Fragile X Advocacy Newsletter!

For 20 years, advocates have joined voices promoting Fragile X awareness, advocating for Fragile X research funding and legislation that will improve the lives of those impacted by Fragile X.

This newsletter shares details and updates on the ‘Asks’ from our 20th NFXF Advocacy Day (February 2024), advocacy accomplishments, legislation we are monitoring, and RARE Across America 2024 registration.

Read the Fragile X Advocacy Newsletter- June 2024

Staying in touch with your Members of Congress (MOC) throughout the year is a fantastic way to keep them informed and updated on the topics you’ve previously discussed. Share the latest version of the newsletter—it’s a great way to follow up naturally!

Here are some easy ways to stay connected with your Member’s offices:

  1. Schedule a Local Visit: Arrange a visit to your local in-district office for a face-to-face update. It’s a wonderful chance to involve your family too! Bring along a printed copy of the newsletter to share with the staff. And after your visit, consider sending a friendly email or even a handwritten note to say thanks. Register by July 12, 2024 to participate in the RARE Across America 2024.
  2. Attend Events: Keep an eye out for any upcoming events hosted by the local/in-district office. Town halls, festivals, safety fairs, and mobile office hours are great opportunities for you and your family to meet your Member and their staff in person.
  3. Connect Online: If visiting in person isn’t possible, don’t worry! You can still stay in touch virtually. Email the newsletter to your contact(s) at the office, and include a quick update about you and your family since you last connected.

Remember, every interaction counts, and your voice matters! Keep up the great work advocating for Fragile X.
