This annual student-led campaign unites the APTA community through advocacy.

Students are the future of our profession, but they are an even more meaningful voice in our advocacy efforts right now.

Led by PT and PTA students, APTA's Flash Action Strategy rallies our community around important issues affecting our profession and the people we serve.

This year's event, Oct. 20 and 21, is designed to educate and gain support for the Allied Health Workforce Diversity Act (H.R. 3320/S. 1679).

How does it work?

PT and PTA students from across the country engage on social media to raise awareness and ask their members of Congress to cosponsor H.R. 3320/S. 1679. There will sample social media posts you can use and a template letter to Congress you can send directly to your legislators.

Access tools and resources, plus instructions through social media and email on how you and your program can participate in the Flash Action Strategy. Also, learn more about the Allied Health Workforce Diversity Act (H.R. 3320/S. 1679).

Join APTA Live at 9 a.m. ET on Wednesday, Oct. 20 for a virtual kickoff to the event, and get your day started with advocacy!
