How to advocate in your local area
You can use your organization to advocate for a statewide respite care system by finding your local legislator here .  However, being a local advocate for respite care doesn't always require political action.  Take small steps to make a big difference in your community! Give your local caregiving organizations the financial support they need to continue the level of care providing your community deserves.  Or most importantly, dontate your time by becoming a volunteer or by working as a caregiver. 

How to be a national advocate
Finding your local legislator is the most important step you can take towards nationally advocating a respite care program. Also, by being a member of the KLRC, you will have access to a variety of networking resources to get in contact with organizations in your community, throughout the state, or in neighboring communities throughout the country.  For a list of advocacty events happening throughout our nation, click here.
