The FASD Respect Act (H.R. 3946/S.1800) is legislation addressing FASD on a federal level, being reintroduced during the 2023-2024 118th Congressional Session. This bi-partisan legislation is co-sponsored in the Senate by Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minnesota) and in the House of Representatives by Representative Betty McCollum (D-Minnesota, 4th District)and Representative Don Bacon (R-Nebraska, 2nd).
If passed, this Bill would allow Health and Human Services to:
1. Promote and fund Education, Awareness, and Services across community agencies and systems of care for infants and adults.
2. Provide funding to State and Tribal Systems for FASD Services throughout the lifespan.
3. Create Centers for Excellence to guide States and other systems of care in expanding diagnostic capacity, public awareness and outreach about FASD, and provide training and technical assistance on prevention, as well as supports and interventions for people diagnosed with FASD.
We are available to provide FASD training to your organization. Our training is tailored to meet the needs of your team — from information on general FASD education, to diagnosis, brain-based supports and accommodations and transitioning from childhood through adulthood.
Do you have a few hours a week to volunteer to help out? We can use your skills and energy! We are especially in need of someone with experience in Canva, WordPress or graphic design. If this is you, please consider volunteering.
We hope YOU will join us!
