T1International is doing some amazing things to advocate for the T1D community! Their mission is to work towards finding sustainable access and affordability of insulin, diabetes supplies, medical care and education for all people living with type 1 diabetes.
Want to help support this amazing organization's mission? Start by signing their Type 1 Diabetes Access Charter! This Charter will be used to bolster type 1 diabetes advocacy efforts worldwide. It will show the world that there are many voices united in support of these rights. It can be used to influence the actions of governments and organizations so that policies can be changed and the rights of people with type 1 diabetes can be prioritized.
Make sure to check out their Resources page for a ton of options for you to utilize in your own advocacy efforts! We especially love their Advocacy Toolkit, which offers clear step by step guidelines on how to safely and effectively advocate for the cause you feel most passionate about in the DOC!
