Our 2023 Advocacy Forum will be held, in person, April 16-19 in Washington, DC, during Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month. The Advocacy Forum provides an opportunity for people to connect, learn, and advocate for the limb loss community. This year’s theme, “Elevate Your Voice,” will highlight ways to expand awareness about the challenges faced by people with limb loss and limb difference to policymakers.
Washington, the capital of the United States, is widely known as a hub of political activity. But beyond politics the city is a rich tapestry of history, culture, and diverse communities.
Washington is home to some of the country’s most iconic landmarks and historical monuments, including the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, and the Jefferson Memorial. Advocacy Forum participants should take the opportunity to stroll along the National Mall and take in these stunning structures up close.
The city also boasts a thriving arts and cultural scene, with numerous museums and galleries showcasing diverse art and artifacts. The Smithsonian museums, located on the National Mall, are some of the most popular and include the National Museum of American History, the National Air and Space Museum, and the National Museum of Natural History. Admission to all 17 Smithsonian museums is free.
Whether you’re there to advocate on the Hill with the Amputee Coalition, a history buff, an art lover, or simply looking to immerse yourself in a city rich with culture and diversity, Washington has something for everyone to discover. So join us during the Advocacy Forum to experience all that this wonderful city has to offer! Learn more here.
