We are healers, helpers, Veterans, and Patriots working to build a healthier, sustainable future. On Your Side Action is committed to advocacy with 3 core pillar goals: advancing health equity, improving Veterans care, and fostering healthier, safer environments.
Our team at On Your Side Action draws on our unique experiences and expertise to empower others to engage in public policy advocacy. We willingly take on the fights that need fighting for our health, to defend our Veterans, and to protect us from environmental contamination.
Our founder and CEO, Dr. Kyle Horton, is an internal medicine physician who previously cared for Veterans with the Department of Veterans Affairs. She has worked alongside Veterans advocacy groups on Capitol Hill for passage of the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act. She has also successfully championed legislation addressing Veterans’ toxic exposures, water contamination, opiate safety, military sexual assault, women Veterans’ care needs, and opposing offshore drilling.
Currently, On Your Side Action is supporting legislative efforts for Veterans suffering devastating health effects from contamination on DOD installations which are now EPA Superfund sites. We are also recruiting healthcare professionals to engage in advocacy for communities with toxic water contamination. This includes efforts to better understand the health impacts of PFAS as these “forever chemicals” are found in most Americans’ blood. We invite you to find out the difference On Your Side Action makes!
