Capitol BuildingAdvocacy Days

Capitol Hill remains closed to visitors in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Congress is still conducting its annual business and working on legislation and policy priorities. Many congressional offices are now working remotely and have largely adapted to responding to constituents with calls, e-mails, and virtual meetings. Right now, Congress is particularly interested in constituent priorities due to the upcoming November elections.  

Senators and Representatives are currently deciding how much annual funding to provide towards medical research and public health priorities through the FY 2021 appropriations process, including resources for programs that support patients impacted by conditions of the liver. Lawmakers are also deciding which bills might be passed during the “lame duck” legislative session at the end of the year. Make your voice heard and ensure your legislators are working behalf of the liver advocacy community during this important time.
