Throughout April, we are challenging our Champions to take as many advocacy actions as possible, report them on the Community, and earn points on their profile! Look out for weekly emails with advocacy challenges and start planning your actions today. If you take A2V actions, be sure to report them on the Champion Community (http://community.shotatlife.org/home). If you have any questions about A2V, contact Shannon Aud at [email protected] your calendars for our National Call-In Day on Friday, April 28!
