Dear Advocates

On March 23, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 410 to 2 to name April “Distracted Driving Awareness Month ”. Let us know how your organization is capitalizing on this moment. Many of your colleagues across the country are supporting texting, cell phone and distracted driving bans.

We know that the Florida Bicycle Association made texting while driving one of their legislative priorities at the Florida Bike Summit. Florida residents may alert key committee and council members about the importance of the texting ban by clicking here:
For the House
For the Senate

If distracted driving is an issue your organization is working on, let the Advocacy Advance Partnership know! Contact Chanda Causer at chanda@peoplepoweredmovement org or Jeff Peel at
