National Lobby Days
TWITTER UPDATES

The EDC brings advocates together twice a year for national Advocacy Days (formerly "Lobby Days") to educate Members of Congress and push for important policy goals. Please join us in Washington, D.C., where you can influence federal policy and make a difference in the lives of those affected by eating disorders.

Don't worry if it is your first time joining us on Capitol Hill. The morning of Advocacy Day, we will review our unified message and the legislation for which we will advocate. We will also teach you about lobbying and how to share your story in a way that leaves a notable impact on Congressional representatives. Your experiences are important—we need your voice. 

Save the date! The next Advocacy Day will take place October 5, 2017. Registration information will be available soon.

 

Can’t make it to Washington, D.C.? Participate in Virtual Advocacy Day! Advocate with us by calling your Members of Congress and spreading awareness on social media. Instructions and details about our upcoming Virtual Advocacy Day will be posted online and sent to our mailing list.

Twelve years ago I came to my first Lobby Day in hopes of using my voice and the day did not disappoint! It has remained the vehicle through which eating disorder sufferers and/or their friends and families have had their voices heard over and over again. Together we make a difference!”
