Welcome to 2022 Champions!!
We are looking forward to another impactful year of advocacy as we all unite to beat malaria! As we move into this new year, we look back at 2021 with great appreciation for all your efforts in helping to end one of history’s deadliest diseases.
In case you missed the news, our summit registration is now live! You can click here to register. Like in 2021, we will be hosting our summit digitally. This is a great opportunity to invite the people in your world to join us! Never before has advocacy been as accessible as it is now! Summit participants can join from the comfort and safety of their homes, reducing the amount of time taken off work to participate in meetings with Members of Congress. To support all NBN champions, the Nothing But Nets team will continue to provide resources and opportunities to make meetings with Congress a success!
In support of these efforts, I am happy to introduce you to our new Grassroots Advocacy Associate, Maegan Cross! Meet Maegan ‘personally’ at our upcoming webinars and click here to listen to why Maegan is United to Beat Malaria!
