09.09.09 is Nat’l “How Much Longer” Day for Autism

In order to hear their voices, we must first raise ours.

It’s time!

NAA’s How Much Longer Campaign is NOW LIVE in our Autism Action Center and ready for you to send a LOUD message to President Obama, the FDA, the CDC, the National Institutes of Health, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Department of Education, the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices and all of America!   Your messages will be sent automatically to the above recipients with just a click of your mouse.

How much longer must our children and families wait for insurance coverage, meaningful research, safer vaccines, effective treatment, appropriate services and support, a safe educational environment and for autism to finally be recognized as a national crisis?

Dear friends,

You’ve been seeing media pieces over the last few weeks asking HOW MUCH LONGER? They are part of a mass faxing/mailing/calling campaign that will cover community-wide autism issues on Wednesday, September 9, 2009 (09.09.09).

Will you join us for a LOUD day of promoting change? With autism now affecting 1 in 100 children, it’s time to set aside polite requests and boldly ask the entire nation HOW MUCH LONGER?

Below are links to samples of the messages we will ask you to forward on 09-09-09 via our easy online advocacy system – The NAA Action Center – which will automatically send your messages to your legislators, federal health officials and the media.
