Capitol Hill Day Rescheduled for Spring 2018

Capitol Hill
Based on current legislative priorities in Washington, DC and the realities of introducing a bill into Congress in the near future, Capitol Hill Day 2017 (originally scheduled for October 25) has been rescheduled for Spring 2018.

Advocacy work to advance our cause will continue this fall and winter through grassroots efforts in congressional districts, advocacy alerts and training opportunities for current and new scleroderma advocates. There was an outstanding workshop at the recent patient education conference focused specifically on how to utilize one’s story as a powerfully effective tool to share with legislators in hopes that the elected official will co-sponsor a bill.

Training opportunities will be announced in future e-newsletters, and the date for Capitol Hill Day 2018 will be announced as soon as it is confirmed.
