Recently I have noticed there are so many new Kratom users coming on board with Kats Botanicals. This makes me so happy! More and more people are extending their ideals and views for alternative health and wellness lifestyles.
Kratom Legislative Day is an important part of a lot of people’s lives, and for all the good reasons you know within yourself. However, there are actually millions of us around the globe who can attest to the true power of this plant. I wanted to create an article which brought home some significant points of being an educated member of the Kats Botanicals community.
This year has been quite a fight for those of us who enjoy experiencing Kratom. It seems like at every turn there is some state getting ready to recall Kratom or the FDA is in process of doing something, or someone in the Senate tries to sneak in SITSA. Thankfully, we’ve been able to dodge and parry these attacks. I want to make sure you know about one huge push the American Kratom Association is doing – Save Kratom Legislative Day. Here’s what every active Kratom consumer should be committing to in the next few weeks.
Save Kratom Legislative Day
The Save Kratom Legislative Day is the American Kratom Associations way to campaign another large educational push to our representatives in Washington and our local areas. This means that on October 19th, whoever signs up with the AKA is committing to the push and will be visiting their local representatives’ office on this specific day.
With the success of SITSA, the AKA feels the need to barrage local offices with information to make sure our voices are not only heard, but cemented into the hearts and heads of these elected officials. This follow up action is to help us keep the momentum going after all of the phone calls and emails our representatives received about SITSA concerning Kratom.
This is a smart campaign.
In a sense, I get why the AKA is doing this – the next time Kratom comes up in a bill, conversation, or another negative outlet, these representatives will remember the day when all of those people visited their local office. This will be memorable.
What Should You Do?
This will be no different than any other thing you have done for Kratom, with the slight exception that you will be visiting your reps local office and handing their staffer a pamphlet containing info about Kratom.
First, you will need to click this link and let the American Kratom Association know you’re interested in helping with this cause. At 10K community members strong, the Kats Botanicals congregation should at least get 2% engagement out of this – I am completely convinced we will!
HINT – If you missed the live training call, simply take another listen here to get caught up.
When you fill out the form, the AKA will assign “District Leaders” to help you in your organization. There will be some big cities and towns which will have many people. On the other hand, there will be other towns, like my own, which are small and will be solely relying on you to complete the action.
Are you up for the task?
If you are an organized and outgoing person, the link above will direct you to email a coordinator who can assign you to be a District Leader. This will put all responsibility of that area on your shoulders and you could be a big help to someone who may not be as open and outgoing as you.
I also realize there are some of you who have a hard time picking up the phone to make the call to save Kratom. The American Kratom Association is going to arm you with all of the tools you need to create the best possible introduction for yourself when you step into that room.
Again, for people who live in rural areas like I do, you may be the only one there. And that’s perfectly fine. For me, these intimate scenarios often have the most impact on someone because you’re talking to them personally.
You will be encouraged to hand over your informational pamphlet to give them the opportunity to look over it and have a discussion about Kratom to the people who represent your voice in Washington. This is your moment to share what this plant has done for you and don’t forget you have a lot of ammo in our Kats Kratom Guidebook (just hit print!). If you need additional notes, please see my past articles. I have shared tons of facts about the FDA and the benefits of Kratom.
When an army is about to win the war, they don’t back down at the last moment. We have the momentum to get this done this month and I hope you will join me in sharing your story at your local representatives’ office on October 19th, 2018. This is a great time for you to testify about the goodness of Kratom and the atrocities being waged by our government. Don’t let them take Kratom away from you.
