- You can also advocate at the local level for legislation and health-care initiatives by attending community forums and town hall meetings and working with local health-care organizations. Your local government representative can be contacted to voice your opinion and concerns regarding health care.
- State-level: You can work with advocacy groups and coalitions to advocate for healthcare initiatives and legislation at the state level. Attending state legislative hearings is also an option. Schedule meetings with your legislators in order to discuss the health-care issues.
- Federal level: You can advocate on behalf of health care in the United States by writing to members of Congress, the Senate and participating in marches or rallies.

A grassroots campaign is a great way to promote your initiative or law. It is possible to organize a group that shares your passion about a health-care concern. Use social media to find potential supporters or create online campaigns and petitions to gain support. Building a solid grassroots campaign can help you raise awareness of your cause and encourage policymakers to take action.
