How can you help?
Be informed! Learn the facts about the attacks upon your continued access to imported medicines by pharma lobbyists and their friends on Capitol Hill. Visit www.RxRights.org and sign up for our email updates.
Write letters! Write to your representatives (look them up) or you local newspaper editor. Educate your representatives and your community about the need for safe and affordable alternatives. Prescription drug adherence has risen to the level of a public health crisis—nearly half of uninsured Americans did not fill prescriptions due to cost this past year!
Tell your friends and family! Educate your family and friends. Tell them that 5 million Americans each year, including many elderly, safely import their needed prescriptions. If the ability to import medicine is taken away, their health will be in jeopardy.
Tell your story! We have been collecting testimonials from citizens throughout the U.S. who are struggling to afford their needed medicine. We’d like to have at least a few testimonials in each state. Add your story to the map!
*Call the White House (202-456-1111) and express your concerns (see talking points below).

Tips for talking to elected officials
When talking to elected officials and their staff, it’s important to be courteous, keep comments brief, and stick to the point.
1) Be respectful.
2) Include key points, such as:
- Your main concern
- Reason for your concern
- A suggested remedy
3) Include an emotional appeal or personal testimonial. If you need examples, we have a number of compelling testimonials featured on our website.
