Federal Legislative Endorsements

The Legislation Workgroup studies the current Congressional, State Senate and House legislation to determine which bills align with the Dignity Alliance mission. A bill should contribute to one of our goals. The membership is notified of any bills of interest, and is given the opportunity to sign on.

Please advocate for our endorsed bills by contacting your legislators.
