On April 25, 2022, an incredible 36 U.S. Representatives signed onto a bipartisan letter in support of sleep, sleep disorders, and sleep health disparities priorities.
Given only several days to activate this spring, the incredible sleep community rallied quickly across the country. Your tremendous outreach to over 200 Congressional Offices on Capitol Hill resulted in 36 co-signers in just a few days, which is very impressive by Congressional appropriations letter standards. In prior years with more time to advocate, we’ve gotten 31 co-signers in 2019, 41 co-signers in 2020, and 54 co-signers in 2021. This continued momentum goes so far to advance the sleep community’s medical research and public awareness efforts.
