Join us for the Amputee Coalition’s virtual Advocacy Forum on April 11 and 12!

Advocacy is how we improve care for all people living with limb loss and limb difference together.

You’ll learn about how you can advocate with the Amputee Coalition, about our advocacy successes,  and our policy priorities for 2021. We’ll dive into what it means to be an advocate, how the legislative process works, and specific skills to engage your lawmakers on our issues to drive change.  Then we’ll kick-off our year-round advocacy by taking action together.  Both days will include time to network, connect, share stories, collaborate, and practice skills together.

Attendees who complete both days of education and training will be certified as Lead Advocates.

Whether you’re new to advocacy and want to get more involved or you’re an Amputee Coalition Lead Advocate looking for the latest policy updates and training, Advocacy Forum is for you!

Advocacy Forum will be hosted virtually on Sunday, April 11, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. ET and Monday, April 12, from 1:00 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET.
