2023 Advocacy Forum Update

Mar 13, 2023 |

Our national staff is organizing a memorable Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month this April, and I invite you to engage in these activities planned just for you. A full lineup of opportunities to learn, connect, and support our community and organization’s mission will be offered to increase engagement and expand our reach. As such, we have made the decision to reimagine what our advocacy outreach could look like throughout April.

Instead of a three-day, in-person Advocacy Forum, we will be offering four virtual sessions to take place on the following dates.

  • Advocacy 101 | April 5
  • The Power of Personal Narrative – Connecting Your Personal Story to Your Advocacy Work | April 12
  • Breaking Into Workforce Development | April 19
  • Finding Your Voice: Career Pathways Workshop | April 26

We will provide opportunities for targeted virtual Hill meetings with members of Congress and their staff who serve on committees that oversee policy work that supports our community, and an advocacy training activity at our national office in Washington, D.C., for members of the limb loss and limb difference community who had registered to attend the Advocacy Forum in person this year.

We are excited to expand our reach beyond what an in-person-only event would have offered while ensuring we are amplifying our voices on Capitol Hill about the challenges facing people living with limb loss and limb difference and the importance of policies that reflect the needs of our diverse and vibrant community.

For those who already registered for the event or applied for a travel scholarship, an AC staff member will contact you soon to discuss your options. If you have questions, you may reach out to

This year’s Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month theme is “Inspire to Elevate.” Here at the Amputee Coalition, we are dedicated to elevating our community in every way. We hope you will join us this April in celebrating this important work.
