Dear HS Community Member,
Now is your opportunity to support HS Awareness, by calling upon your state government to formally recognize HS for the month of June.
June is HS Awareness month in the United Kingdom and Europe. We in the United States would like to show our support by petitioning our state governments to issue a proclamation for a formally recognized HS Awareness Day or Month. Let’s make this a GLOBAL EVENT!
Our goal is to have as many states as possible participating by June 2018. Most states only require 2-4 weeks notice of the month you are requesting the proclamation for. We hope we can have a few states accomplish a proclamation for this June of 2017.
The states that are currently covered are; Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Minnesota. If you are a resident of one of the other 45 states that are unlisted, and would like to take the lead in submitting for your state, please contact Hope for HS via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there are multiple requests for a given state, Submission Leaders will be selected on a first come, first served basis, with others given the opportunity for subsequent years, in order of request.
Hope for HS can provide you with a letter template that you can use for submission, and letter of support.
