Proclamation requests have closed (except in some special instances; contact us for more information). Thank you to all who participated! When you receive your proclamation, make sure to send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org! Photos will be shared via our newsletter and on social media.
Each year, we ask volunteers to help request ceremonial proclamations from their state and local government officials. These proclamations formally commemorate September as Pain Awareness Month and serve as a great awareness and advocacy tool.
If you would like to serve as your state’s lead for submitting the proclamation request to your governor’s office, please fill out the form below. Please note that state leads will be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis, but there’s always the opportunity to submit a request to your local leaders at the town/city level.
After receiving your completed form, we’ll provide step-by-step instructions and customizable templates for making the request. We’re asking that volunteers be able to submit their proclamation request by August 9 (extended!), ensuring your Governor’s office or town leadership have ample time to respond.
If you have any questions, email email@example.com.
