Hit the Hill- Wednesday, January 23rd
KATS Call to Action
Hello KATS members. Wednesday, January 23rd is our annual Hit the Hill Capitol Advocacy Day. Athletic Trainers from around the state will meet with numerous state legislators discussing the importance of athletic trainers in protecting the health and safety of athletes in Kansas. Also, KATS will display information and AT students with the KATS Student Leadership Council will perform emergency response simulations related to on-field emergencies in the first-floor rotunda of the Capitol to interact and educate legislators, their staff and the general public who are in the Capitol that day.
KATS appreciates the 30+ AT’s and 10+AT students who are coming to Topeka to participate on site on Wednesday.
If you can’t make it on Wednesday, you can still participate. Please take a few moments on Tuesday to identify who your House Representatives and Senators are (www.ksleglookup.org) and send them a brief email about athletic training and invite them to visit us in the Rotunda on Wednesday. A sample email can be found here. You can use it as a template to craft your email that positively describes athletic training and emphasizes the points below.
Thank you for taking the time to help KATS Hit the Hill rather that is in person or through flooding legislators email inboxes. Collectively our voice will be heard.
