Thank you for your interest in Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill 2017 (March 7-8). The deadline for applications has passed. If you are selected, we will contact you with more details.

Each year the American Kidney Fund brings a group of our Advocates to the nation’s capital for advocacy training and meetings with their elected officials on issues important to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients on dialysis. The two-day program includes a full day of training on AKF’s policy priorities, how to talk about these issues with members of Congress, and ways to be an effective spokesperson for dialysis patients. On day two, Advocates put what they’ve learned into practice while talking to their U.S. Representatives and Senators about kidney disease and motivating them to help the community.

This year we are bringing 12 members of our Advocacy Network to Washington.
