Legislative Advocacy Week February 22 - 26, 2021

The SDSLHA 2021 Legislative Advocacy event is a week-long virtual campaign for SDSLHA members and SD Communication Sciences and Disorders students to inform legislators and the public about the professions of audiology, speech-language pathology and speech-language pathology assisting. You can participate in the following ways:

1) Click HERE to view student advocacy videos from students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders programs in SD at Augustana University, Mitchell Technical College, and the University of South Dakota! 

2) Attend the Advocacy 101 webinar on February 10 at 6 PM MT/7 PM CT. This webinar is FREE to SDSLHA members and is available for 0.1 ASHA CEUs. 

3) Send an email to your legislative representatives introducing yourself as a member of our profession and informing them about the work we do for the people of SD. You can use the email template provided to help you get started.

4) Watch the SDSLHA Facebook page for student advocacy videos and share them on your page. Because our page is a private page, you will need to copy and paste the posts to your page to share them. 

In addition to your advocacy efforts, SDSLHA will be sending an informational flyer about SDSLHA and our professions in SD to all legislators the week of February 22.
