National FASD has helped to convene a recent series of roundtable discussions involving FASD stakeholders, experts and policy makers that have been powerful experiences for all involved and transformative on a political level. We are deeply appreciative of the decades of work done by so many tireless advocates that made this moment in time possible. And we also are well aware that there is a great deal of work yet to be done on a policy level. Join with us! #SpeakYourTruth (See also the APPG section of this website.)
