Advocacy Tools

The National Trauma Campaign relies on the engagement and voices of constituents.

Our mission is to educate members of Congress on the science of trauma and resilience and engage congressional offices to support trauma-informed policies and provisions. You can help expand the reach of the Campaign by sharing information with your networks and encourage individuals and organizations to join. It’s free and all-volunteer led!
