Grass Roots Movement

The NRRTS Board of Directors has initiated a "Grass Roots Movement for Leadership and Advocacy".

The goal of this endeavor is to:

  • recruit and educate members of the CRT Industry about the importance of advocacy at the local and national level
  • provide events highlighting advocacy opportunities
  • provide sponsorship to organizations with a similar mission


Join us in this movement...

Provide Financial Support


The Roll on Capitol Hill is United Spinal’s annual legislative advocacy event that addresses issues that impact the health, independence and quality of life of individuals living with spinal cord injuries and disorders. Every summer our member advocates visit with and educate Congressional leaders about the policy issues affecting the spinal cord injury and disorders (SCI/D) community.

For the 6th year, United Spinal Association brings together attendees, including many wheelchair users – from all over the country to participate in more than 200 individual meetings with their Members of Congress. NRRTS is soliciting donations to support this important event.

Each and every donor will be recognized at the Sponsor Expo as the NRRTS Grass Roots Sponsorship. This will demonstrate how CRT suppliers, providers and manufacturers have come together to make their event possible. CRT consumers carry the most powerful message to Congress.

Make your donation today to make this possible.

There are a few ways you can donate!
  • Make a donation (click here now)
  • Add the donation amount to your NRRTS Renewal Application
  • Mail a check to: NRRTS at 5815 82nd Street, Suite 145 #317 Lubbock, TX 79424  

Education

Has your local member of Congress signed on to current CRT legislation?

One of the best ways to educate your members of Congress and local Legislators is to set up a visit to your company or clinic to observe and learn first-hand about what you and the people you serve. Including consumers in these visits provides even more impact.

If you would like to know more, order our course, "Effective Advocacy: Educating your Members of Congress". NRRTS will provide this online course presented by Weesie Walker, NRRTS Executive Director at no cost!

Click to order the course now!

This course is available to anyone who is interested in advocacy! In this course, Weesie will describe the main components of the Separate Benefit Category, share effective methods of communicating with members of Congress, and discuss strategies and actions critical to a successful site visit.

The bottom line

Regardless of who you are; consumer; supplier; clinician manufacturer, or consumer - you have a stake in what happens on Capitol Hill and in your State Houses and in the offices of State and Federal regulators. You need to be an active advocate to assure that consumers with significant disabilities and health issues receive the Complex Rehab Technology they need to help assure their health, function and quality of life. It is not somebody else’s responsibility.

Making a call to your Member of Congress, local representative or Governor’s office takes a few minutes.
