One of the highlights of the Advocacy Forum is the opportunity to meet directly with change makers on Capitol Hill. Learn more about the impact you can make as an advocate.
What is Hill Day? During the 2023 Advocacy Forum, we will host Hill Day on April 18. Hill Day is an annual advocacy event that brings people with limb loss or limb difference, their families, and allies to Washington, DC, to meet with members of Congress and advocate for policies that support our community. This year’s Advocacy Forum provides a powerful opportunity to make a difference and raise awareness about the issues that matter most to our community. Hill Day is a unique opportunity to share personal stories and experiences, and to demonstrate the impact of limb loss and limb difference on individuals and families.
Why is Hill Day important? By meeting with members of Congress and sharing personal stories, Hill Day participants help to educate and inform policymakers about the challenges faced by people with limb loss and limb difference and the policies needed to support them.
What happens on Hill Day? We will head to Capitol Hill and attend training sessions to learn about the issues and policies necessary for our community to thrive. We will then meet with members of Congress and their staffs to share our stories and advocate for policies that support the community.
Register today for the Advocacy Forum to be a part of this incredible experience.
