More than 350 advocates attended the 2017 Legislative Conference on March 1st to learn about the legislative process, legislation currently under consideration by Congress, and effective advocacy techniques to build a relationship with Members of Congress and staff. The conference was crafted to educate advocates with little to no political experience and to provide useful updates to those with a history of political action to ensure that everyone was prepared for a successful Lobby Day.
Below are videos of each presentation, and slides for presentations which used them. For additional information on the Legislative Conference or other events from Rare Disease Week on Capitol Hill, visit the event’s home page.
