CFIDS Lobby Day
Personal contact from voters who care about CFIDS is the secret
weapon in the CFIDS advocacy arsenal. To facilitate contact with elected
officials, The CFIDS Association of America will sponsor its annual Washington,
D.C. Lobby Day event March 19-20, 2003.
On Lobby Day, CFIDS advocates from around the country, including
persons with CFIDS (PWCs) and their family members and friends, come together on
Capitol Hill to personally educate Congress about CFIDS and ask for help in
securing an improved federal response to the illness.
Lobby Day participants are trained on effective meeting
strategies and provided with materials to share with elected officials so they
will feel confident and prepared before their first meeting.
Information and registration materials for the 2003 Lobby Day
have been posted on The CFIDS Association's website. To download the Lobby Day
