Dear Fellow Diabetes Advocates,
It is vital that we rally the United States grass-roots diabetes community like it never has been before. Volunteers, associations and networks all need to come together at this point in time to ensure the United States - a critical vote at the U.N. which also determines how many other countries will be inclined to vote- solidly supports the U.N. Resolution on Diabetes and votes YES.
Below is a list of three vital persons in the U.S. government who have the ability to influence the U.S. Ambassador in his decision. Included is a standard letter (available at: www.unitefordiabetes.org/assets/files/assets/files/Letter%20Template%20for%20Individuals.doc ) which will help you in writing to them. Letters, emails and phone calls of support from across the nation will help convince our government leaders that this unprecedented opportunity to help people struggling with diabetes around the world must not be lost.
Please have you and your friends and loved ones all write to:
