Join us for an in-person NFXF Advocacy Day for February 27- February 28, 2023. Nearly 100% of Congressional offices are accepting in-person meetings. Congressional offices are not having some people in-person and some virtual in the same meeting. Registration is open: Advocacy Day 2023 – Campaign (fragilex.org)
Training will include a combination of mandatory online self-paced training ahead of time and group training/preparation at the Embassy Suites on the afternoon of Monday, February 27. We will also be hosting a virtual Zoom meeting earlier in the month of February for new or returning advocates.
Agenda: (specific times will be shared closer to the event)
- Monday, February 27th: Afternoon training and reception with light snacks
- Tuesday, February 28th: Meetings at Capitol Hill
Scholarships (up to $500 per advocate) are available for individuals, families, self-advocates, or siblings who have not previously attended a NFXF Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C. or advocates who might not otherwise be able to attend due to limited financial resources.
Applications due January 6, 2023.
