Ecstatic to announce that the For Grace-sponsored resolution proclaiming September as Pain Awareness Month and September 24th as Women In Pain Awareness Day (to coincide with our 10th Annual Conference) passed in the California Senate by an unanimous 39-0 vote. Though we had to take last year off due to COVID, this is For Grace's 18th year championing this effort. Thank you, Senator Maria Elena Durazo and staffer Fernando Rameriz, for making SR 53 a reality despite these challenging times. Let's fight on to get chronic pain recognized as a top health priority!
