FRA Shipmates Take Action!
Big Increase in Action Center Usage
The 112th Congress (2011-2012) was a banner year for
shipmates using the FRA
Action Center, generating 111,824 messages to elected officials.
Since the launch of the program in the 109th Congress
(2005-2006), usage of the Action Center has increased by more than
550 percent. This advocacy service allows visitors to send
prewritten messages, which can also be edited, to their members of
Congress, urging their support or opposition to legislative proposals
that impact current and former service personnel. The FRA Legislative
Team thanks shipmates for their increased usage of the Action Center,
which compliments and enhances FRA’s advocacy efforts.
Bills not enacted into law during the 112th Congress must
be re-introduced in the 113th Congress, which convenes on
January 3, 2013. Visit the FRA Action
Center regularly to weigh in on new measures that impact you
and your fellow shipmates.
