Physical Therapy Grassroots Toolkit

This toolkit was created to encourage APTA members to learn more about the legislative process and become actively involved in advocating for their profession.

In Part I you will learn about the federal legislative process and the tools APTA has created to encourage advocacy efforts by physical therapists and physical therapist assistants throughout the country. In Part II you will learn advanced advocacy activities that can be used once you have familiarized yourself with the beginner advocacy activities and are comfortable hosting advocacy events yourself such as practice visits and fundraisers. Finally, in Part III we bring it all together for a unified advocacy message and point out additional advocacy resources for interested advocates.

Please contact advocacy@apta.org with any questions.
