APTA's September Flash Action Strategy: Student-Led, Member-Powered

This year's Flash Action Strategy (FAS) will take place September 18 and 19, and you can help make it the biggest ever.

What Is FAS?

Flash Action Strategy is an annual student-led campaign in which students, educators, and clinicians use social media and email to educate members of Congress about legislative priorities that impact the physical therapy profession. First held in 2013, FAS has resulted in more than 32,000 emails to legislators.

Social media has become a powerful advocacy tool. Many congressional offices have a dedicated staff member who works on social media, and just a few constituents tweeting about an issue can catch the attention of legislative staff.

This year's goal: to increase the number of cosponsors of the Physical Therapist Workforce and Patient Access Act.
