Every session of Congress, JDRF Advocates meet with their Members and staff, many of whom are unfamiliar with JDRF, type 1 diabetes (T1D) and its emotional, physical and financial toll.

JDRF's Promise to Remember Me Campaign (Promise) gives you the opportunity to meet with your legislator in person at the state and local level, teach them about T1D, and ask for their support of T1D research funded by the Congress.

JDRF is one of the most effective grassroots advocacy organizations in the country because of people like you whose lives are touched by T1D. Through the years, your voices have shared with Congress how T1D affects you, your family and your community, leading to continued funding for research and regulatory policies that improve life for people with T1D until the day we find a cure.

If you are interested in meeting with your Member(s) of Congress, please sign up now. Local JDRF volunteer advocacy leaders will organize the meetings and alert you when there is an upcoming opportunity in your area.
