Our goal is to meet virtually with every Member of Congress to reinforce our relationships and to ensure the needs of the T1D community are top-of-mind. As meetings are held, be sure to check out the progress on the map, and click through all of the inspiring photos of families and individuals impacted by T1D who are engaging with their Members of Congress.Sign Up for a Meeting

Every session of Congress, JDRF Advocates meet with their Members and staff, many of whom are unfamiliar with JDRF, T1D and its emotional, physical and financial toll.
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 informed Congress how T1D affects you, your family and your community, leading to continued Federal funding for research and health and regulatory policy that improves the lives of people with T1D until we find cures.
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.
