Proclamation project

A proclamation is a public or official announcement issued by a Governor, Mayor, and/or City Council member to commemorate a specific time period (day, week, or month) for the purpose of raising awareness about local efforts. (Example: National Infertility Awareness Week designated in April).

What is a proclamation?

Why are proclamations important?

Proclamations help increase public awareness about a specific issue. Having an elected official, like a mayor or town supervisor, who is in a leadership position show support for the proclamation helps validate one of the goals of National Infertility Awareness Week—changing the conversation around infertility and family building.

Proclamations can only be submitted and requested by individuals living in the requested state and/or city to

their governor, mayor, or city council. Organizations are not allowed to submit one on behalf of a cause and out of state residents requesting will also be denied. 
 

We would like to have a proclamation in as many towns and cities as we can leading up to National Infertility Awareness Week, April 21 - 27, 2024, to create a movement

of educational awareness.
