In-District Lobby Days has concluded! Rare disease advocates across the country streamed into the offices of their legislators, asking their Congressmen and Congresswomen to support pieces of legislation aimed at helping patients with rare diseases. Legislators have signed on to co-sponsor legislation, joined the Rare Disease Congressional Caucus, and agreed to support the Innovation for Healthier Americans when it is introduced in the Senate.
In-District Lobby Days is aimed at building relationships between the rare disease community and members of congress, while helping garner support for some pieces of legislation key to the community. Stay tuned with RDLA for more opportunities to advocate for the rare disease community.
