Rare Disease Week on Capitol Hill 27 February 2017 - 02 March 2017 Washington, United States
4158840223
Hosted by Rare Disease Legislative Advocates

Rare Disease Week on Capitol Hill brings rare disease community members from across the country together to be educated on federal legislative issues, meet other advocates, and share their unique stories with legislators.

The week of events starts with the Rare Disease Documentary Screening and Cocktail Reception on Monday evening.

On Tuesday, advocates attend RDLA’s Legislative Conference to learn about the legislative process, legislation currently under consideration by Congress, and effective advocacy techniques to build a relationship with Members of Congress and staff. The conference is crafted to educate advocates with little to no political experience and to provide useful updates to those with a history of political action. Our aim is to have every advocate leave the Legislative Conference with confidence in their ability to make a difference on Capitol Hill.

On Lobby Day, advocates put what they learned at the Legislative Conference to work. At breakfast, keynote speakers prepare attendees for the day of meetings with Members of Congress and their staff, raising awareness of rare disease and advocate for the legislation most relevant to them. That evening, the EveryLife Foundation hosts the Rare Artist Reception with artists from around the country displaying their work and sharing their experience with rare disease with Members of Congress and staff.

On Thursday, advocates have the opportunity to attend the Rare Disease Congressional Caucus briefing, which will convene policy experts and rare disease stakeholders to educate Congressional staff and the public on issues of importance to the rare disease community.

All events are free for patients, caregivers and other advocates but advance registration is required for each event.  Please sign up for our email list or check this page regularly. You can also follow RDLA on Twitter and Facebook for updates.
