Advocacy Day is an annual event sponsored and organized by the National Fragile X Foundation. Advocacy Day 2012 takes place Tuesday March 6 – Wednesday March 7, 2012, which is when Congress is considering the federal budget for the following year. Parents and family members impacted by Fragile X-associated Disorders are encouraged to take part in this powerful experience that provides a unique opportunity to let your voices be heard in Washington, DC. We urge you to join us in our legislative advocacy effort. Rest assured that your voices, individually and collectively, will be heard loud and clear in the halls of Congress.
