Call to Congress 2018

ADA’s Call to Congress


Every spring, the ADA convenes Call to Congress -- bringing hundreds of Diabetes Advocates to Capitol Hill to educate their members of Congress about the impact of diabetes, share their personal stories, and advocate for key federal priorities like federal funding to support diabetes research and access to healthcare.

Call to Congress is the premier advocacy campaign for ADAs Diabetes Advocates to drive positive change among congressional champions and key influencers. Read a recap of 2018 Call to Congress here. And make sure to save the date! Call to Congress has been scheduled for March 27-29, 2019, in Washington D.C.

Call to Congress participants on the Captiol stepsBut that’s not all! While Call to Congress culminates with an in-person event in Washington, the initiative encompasses a far larger and longer engagement campaign throughout the year, giving Diabetes Advocates a voice at home and in Washington. As a result of your advocacy, leaders on Capitol Hill are moved to support and champion critical legislation supporting individuals with and at risk for diabetes. Your voice is powerful, and your advocacy affects true change that will move the nation closer to our mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

Save the date!  Call to Congress has been scheduled for March 27-29, 2019 in Washington D.C.
