Behind Closed Doors

These are the Members of the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee on Personnel.

These are the people who decide behind closed doors whether or not to accept an amendment similar to the one we passed last week in the House that will give our children the autism treatments we have been waiting for.

Behind closed doors.  When no one is watching.

These are the people standing between your child and my child getting the medical treatment for autism they need and deserve.

What will you do about it?

My suggestion is that you speak up and tell every single one of these legislators about YOU.  Tell them about YOUR family.  Because they are never going to change their minds unless you change it for them.

You are contacting them regarding “Senator Gillibrand’s amendment, a measure to make autism treatments available to all Department of Defense dependents whether active duty or retired, lifting the dollar cap on care.”

Be honest.  Be respectful.  Get it done.

Tell them WHY we need their support.  No one person can get us over the goal line.

It truly is YOUR turn.

What will you do behind closed doors to change the world?
