It’s the 50th anniversary of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders! We’ve come a long way since the US’ first diagnosis of 1973, but we still have a ways to go. Join the nation-wide movement for FASD services, support, and strengths-based evaluation.

BE a Supporter of The FASD Respect Act

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 and in the House of Representatives by Representative Betty McCollum (D-Minnesota, 4th District) and Representative Don Bacon(R-Nebraska, 2nd).

 


‍A special THANK YOU to our North Carolina Representatives Deborah K. Ross, 2nd district and Alma Adams, 12th district for co-sponsoring this bill! 

If passed, this Bill would allow Health and Human Services to:

 

  • Promote and fund Education, Awareness and Services across community agencies and systems of care for infants and adults.

 

  • Provide funding to State and Tribal Systems for FASD Services throughout the lifespan.

 

  • 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.
