Our goal is to educate and influence our legislators as they make policy decisions that could impact your life. Participation in events like Hill Day is key to accomplishing that goal and enacting change. We encourage everyone to attend so we can share a unified voice on issues affecting the limb loss community. Our goal is to provide you with the information and resources you need to successfully advocate and share your story with elected officials, including:
- Insurance Fairness for Amputees and improving access to prosthetic and custom orthotic care
- Funding for research and programs that improve the lives of people with limb loss and limb difference
- Protecting access to care and ensuring qualified providers are providing prosthetic care to patients.
Our Hill Day program includes gathering on the afternoon of April 8 at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Old Town Alexandria to prepare for our visits by reviewing materials, policy talking points, and an overview of what to expect during visits. On April 9, we will use what we’ve learned to attend meetings throughout the day with your congressional offices. Transportation between the hotel and Capitol Hill will be provided.
Registration for this year’s Hill Day event is now closed. We choose to close registration for this event the week prior to perform final preparations and confirm any outstanding meeting requests. We invite you to plan on attending Hill Day in April of 2020.
If you have any questions or if you’re interested in participating in the Amputee Coalition’s Hill Day, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or toll-free at 888.267.5669, ext. 7104. Once you’ve confirmed you will be attending, we will need your full name and address so that we can start scheduling meetings! We look forward to seeing you in D.C.!
