On March 24, 2023, a bipartisan group of 33 U.S. Representatives co-signed a Congressional letter in support of prioritizing sleep medical research and public awareness at a national level.
Starting on World Sleep Day last Friday, sleep advocates took action across the country. Your powerful outreach reached over 200 Congressional Offices on Capitol Hill and resulted in 33 co-signers in just a few days, which is very impressive by Congressional appropriations letter standards. In prior years, we’ve gotten 31 co-signers in 2019, 41 co-signers in 2020, 54 co-signers in 2021, and 36 co-signers in 2022. This continued momentum is critical to advance sleep health, sleep equity, and sleep disorders at a national level.
