On the third day (after a lot of practice!), you and your state delegation will meet with Members of Congress and their staff.

Check out the 12th Annual Call-on Congress!

We had an AMAZING turnout for the 2018 Call-on Congress – our largest yet! We saw over 150 advocates from 33 states, and combined they had over 170 meetings! The virtual advocates made us even LOUDER – with thousands taking action by emailing members of Congress on Hill Day! Check out the blog recaps from Day 1 and Day 2 from advocate/caregiver Alex Hernandez!
