43 Organizations support FREED

Dear friends -

We continue building momentum for the Federal Response to Eliminate Eating Disorders Act (the FREED Act) and look forward to your assistance in garnering even more support.

We are excited about the 43 undersigned organizations that actively support the FREED ACT by signing onto a letter to Congressman Kennedy thanking him for his leadership on this bill and urging its passage.

If you know of an organization that is not on this list - please speak to their leadership and urge them to support the bill as well. They can email me at requesting that we add their organization to the list of supporters. THANKS!!!!!!
