Become an Advocate

View the bills that NAPBS is tracking.

The involvement of members is vital to the success of our grassroots efforts. To make a difference, you have to make your voice heard. We encourage all NAPBS members to use the information provided on the Legislative Action Center to take an active role in addressing the issues facing screening. We also encourage participation in NAPBS Advocacy Day.

Download the Advocacy Toolkit containing material to assist NAPBS members in developing strategies to educate legislators on topical issues affecting screening.

NAPBS is also looking for one or two individuals within each state wiling to be State Captains who can organize a call or discussion with all of the state’s volunteers. While legislation that requires action is not frequent, it is typically an urgent matter and will require the volunteers to organize on short notice.
