The late Illinois Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirkson once said, "When I feel the heat, I see the light." It's a great statement on the power of grassroots advocacy, and, it's exactly what the Wisconsin Hospital Association (WHA) is doing through our Hospitals Education & Advocacy Team (HEAT) grassroots network - helping you bring heat and light directly to your legislators on issues of importance to your hospital.
The HEAT program provides you with the information, the insight, the strategy, and the assistance you need in order to help share insight on how legislative issues impact hospitals and the communities they serve. HEAT is specifically designed to facilitate your grassroots involvement so the voice of hospitals is heard loud and clear by elected officials.
We know you’re busy and that is why we believe the HEAT Grassroots Action Center will be so helpful—allowing you to take action as quickly and easily as possible. Whether you are responding to an email action alert we send to you or you want to email your legislators on other issues, the Grassroots Action Center is the place to go.
While at the HEAT Grassroots Action Center, you’ll find other valuable resources, including our comprehensive Grassroots Handbook, short videos and past issues of our monthly newsletter. Simply log in to access these resources and to advocate on behalf of your community hospital!
