Congressional Action Network

In the Spotlight
The Voice of Local Health Departments

NACCHO's Congressional Action Network (CAN) was started in 2009 to foster the grassroots voice in Washington on behalf of local health departments and their communities. The CAN has more than 800 members who communicate regularly with their members of Congress, attend NACCHO webinars on advocacy topics, and receive e-mail updates on current issues in Washington.

CAN members are local health department professionals who work to build relationships with their elected officials and respond to NACCHO action alerts by contacting their Representative and Senators. If you have a limited ability to communicate with elected officials, you can still participate by sharing information with others in your community.

Join us!

Sign up for NACCHO's Congressional Action Network.
