In order to protect vaccine choice in Michigan—as well as nationwide—we must be willing to educate the public, our family and friends, and our legislators.
Here are some simple steps anyone can take:
Write Your Legislators
While a handwritten letter is best, an email is still a good option when time and resources are limited. Let your State Rep and State Senator know why vaccine choice matters to you.
Build Your Own Advocacy Folder
Print off these documents to study and use as talking points. You can also share them with your legislators, school administrators, health care providers, family and friends.
All Hands On Deck
Base your level of involvement on your availability, not experience. We can even connect you with an experienced vaccine choice advocate for more guidance.
Just 1 hour a month to spare
Between work, family, school, and caring for others, it may seem like you have no time to make an impact, but MVC has quick actions you can take when you have a minute here and there.
Share this website with your friends and family
Show your support for MVC by wearing a vaccine choice pin, t-shirt, or hat
Share, like or thumbs up MVC content on social media
And most important:
Visit the MVC Action Center to contact your legislators; email is predefined and can be automatically sent with a short form and click of a button
4-5 hours a month to spare
This is the level at which MVC's more active members contribute their time and advocacy efforts at around 1 hour per week.
In addition to the activities outlined in the other section, you can:
Monitor and share vaccine-choice legislation with members and MVC leaders
Build relationships with your legislator(s) by attending their coffee, etc.
Volunteer to educate other MVC Community Members or do community outreach
MVC is 100% volunteer, so you can contribute your skillset for administrative, creative, or tech
Additional Guides To Help You Advocate
Prepared by the Michigan Legislature, provides information to get in touch with the RIGHT PEOPLE AT THE RIGHT TIME to make your concerns heard.
Prepared by the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), explains how informed consent and precautionary principles together serve as an ethical foundation for protecting consumer rights and ensuring patient safety.
We Need Your Help
Michigan is one of 17 states that continues to support the right of parents and individuals to make their own vaccination choices, although that right is threatened.
As a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization, MVC is dependent upon the generous support of its members and volunteers. 100% of your donation goes directly toward the cause of educating Michigan citizens and defending vaccine choice.
Ready To Get Involved?
Thank you for helping to secure vaccine choice for this generation and the next. MVC members enjoy many benefits of learning from a like-minded community, experienced vaccine choice advocates, and special presentations from medical and legal experts. But everyone is welcome to utilize our educational resources and advocacy tools found on our website, as well as the MVC Action Center, which makes contacting your legislators about vaccine choice easy and secure. Remember, your voice counts!
