Day at the Capitol

Register for Day at the Capitol

February 23, 2022 | 9:30 AM
An online event

Join us for our annual Advocacy Day at the Capitol to meet with your legislators, influence public policy, and share the challenges of living with epilepsy. Due to COVID restrictions, this event will be held online.

We are not able to schedule legislator meetings for advocates registering after 2/18. If we do not already have meetings scheduled for your district, you will still have an opportunity to reach out and send information to your legislators.

Day at the Capitol Schedule

Breakout Rooms and Welcome

Check-in for the day by joining a Breakout Room and meeting other advocates prior to the program. Our staff will be in these rooms to welcome you.

Program

Opening program with organization and community speakers, hear from legislators, and learn more about policy priorities.

Legislative Meetings

Meetings are scheduled based on legislator availability and can be anytime during this period. EFMN will schedule all legislator appointments and provide you with materials to help get the conversation started.

Each meeting is between 15 and 30 minutes long and includes you and other epilepsy advocates living in your district. You may have one or two of these meetings.

Debrief

Optional opportunity for advocates to share back what happened in their meetings, discuss next steps, and learn more about the grassroots advocacy movement we’re growing.

Looking for more ways to connect?

Take a look at our upcoming Connect Groups and Social Events. These events are aimed to create a place of safety and trust for those affected by epilepsy.
