    Advocacy

    Teens Speak Up! (nominations being accepted now through early December-call 715-834-4455 for more information.)

    Teens Speak Up! and the Public Policy Institute is the Foundation's centerpiece advocacy initiative. Every year we bring together over 150 advocates, including Epilepsy Foundation affiliate staff, parents, teens, doctors, and volunteers from across the nation. Through this initiative, we are able to strengthen our advocacy network and share updates on the state of epilepsy research & funding, as well as give our families an opportunity to speak with Congress and share their stories of living with epilepsy.

    Teens Speak Up! provides an opportunity for teens with epilepsy and their parents to visit the nation's capital, receive advocacy training, meet with their legislators, and tell their personal stories. Teens Speak Up! is part of the Public Policy Institute.

    Teens from across the country are nominated by affiliates and selected by the Foundation to participate in the program. After receiving training at TSU, each teen is asked to turn that training into action in their respective home districts through our Year of Service program.
