AMAC Action is pleased to release our 2021 Advocacy Annual Report. There was an unprecedented level of advocacy engagement by AMAC members in 2021 that directly led to multiple legislative victories including:
AMAC members also stepped up in Virginia to work as poll watchers during the election for Governor. Thanks in large part to AMAC members, there was a high level of scrutiny that ensured the integrity of that election. AMAC-supported bills that were signed into federal law included the “Congressional Gold Medal Bill” that commemorated the sacrifice of 13 brave American service members who perished in a terrorist attack while evacuating US citizens and Afghan allies at Hamid Karzai International Airport in Afghanistan and a pilot program designed to provide alternative therapy for veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.
There were many advocacy successes in 2021, and they all belong to the caring efforts of the AMAC membership, aka the “AMAC Army.” We hope you enjoy reading the results of a very successful year in advocacy and take comfort in knowing that you belong to a substantial organization that fights for you and delivers results.
