Help us pass the United States’ Stillbirth and SUID Prevention Education and Awareness Act (S1445/HR3212).

On August 24th, Laura Crandall, Program Director/ Co-founder/SUDC Parent, will be making another trip to Washington, DC to advocate for the United States’ Stillbirth and SUID Prevention Education and Awareness Act (S1445/HR3212). This bill would standardize investigations of all sudden unexpected pediatric deaths up to age 4, create a national registry for these tragedies, track risk factors, fund public health messages and provide grief support services for families affected. We know all too well how each of these pieces is vital to progress.

Laura Crandall is focused this month on getting the support of the following Senators who all sit on the U.S. Senate Heath committee. They will help determine if the bill moves out of committee onto it’s next step in order to become law. Can you please look at the list and if you live in one of the their states PLEASE fill out our quick and easy Advocacy Online Form now. It will generate an immediate email to them requesting they co-sponsor S1445. Emails from their constituents prior to my meeting with them would greatly help pave the way for success.

Lisa Murkowski (AK)
Judd Gregg (NH)
John McCain (AZ)
Tom Coburn, M.D. (OK)
Johnny Isakson (GA)
Lamar Alexander (TN)
Pat Roberts (KS)
Orrin G. Hatch (UT)
Richard Burr (NC)
Michael B. Enzi (WY)

In addition, please spread the link to our Advocacy Online Form far and wide to anyone you know in these states, as well as posting on your social networking sites. Thank you in advance!
