ASHA Advocacy Highlights from 2019

January 14, 2020

Over 340 meetings held with House and Senate staff and over 27,000 messages sent to members of Congress and state legislators on issues impacting the professions. Learn more about the progress we made advocating together in 2019. Take a look at the 2019 ASHA Advocacy: A Year in Review [PDF] to see some advocacy highlights. Here’s to making a difference together in 2020. 


Published annually, ASHA’s Government Affairs and Public Policy Board worked with members and staff to create the 2020 Public Policy Agenda. Developed for ASHA members, lawmakers, policymakers, decision makers, and consumers, this resource identifies the top public policy priorities for the professions of audiology and speech-language pathology, and guides ASHA’s advocacy efforts in the year to come.
