Come with Us to Washington!

 In Uncategorized

Washington Days, the National Hemophilia Foundation’s annual grassroots advocacy event, will take place from Wednesday, February 26 until Friday, February 28, 2014 at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA. This is your opportunity to join others from the bleeding disorders community in Washington, DC, to tell elected officials in Congress about the issues that affect you and your family.
The Washington Days program will begin with a first-time attendee workshop on Wednesday afternoon. Our interactive review of the fact sheets and talking points for all participants will take place Wednesday evening and will be followed by a Welcome Reception. On Thursday we hit the Hill for a full day of face-to-face meetings with members of Congress and their staff. Dinner on Thursday will again be dedicated to celebrating the advocacy efforts of our volunteers in their local communities. We close on Friday after the State Advocacy Workshop, a training program that explores state-specific issues and improves our effectiveness on the state level. It’s important that we send a strong group from across the Greater New York City area to make sure our voices are heard!

Limited funds are available through NYCHC to cover a portion of the hotel and transportation expenses for community members who want to participate. If you would like to request this assistance, please send an email to [email protected].
