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.
