Advocacy Toolkit


Why We Honor Veterans and Advocacy?

You don’t have to travel to Washington, DC to build relationships with your Members of Congress. In fact, We Honor Veterans partners are already poised to engage Members of Congress, state, and local officials. All elected officials are concerned about the welfare of our nation’s veterans, and the We Honor Veterans program can be an effective way to engage Members of Congress in discussions about hospice.

We admit, developing relationships with Members of Congress can seem intimidating at first. That’s why We Honor Veterans and the Hospice Action Network developed this toolkit to share best practices in advocacy and how We Honor Veterans partners can apply them for your Hospice Advocacy.
