Help us meet each new Member of Congress

Our goal is to meet with every newly elected Member of Congress to form 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 new Members.

JDRF’s New Member Outreach Initiative provides an opportunity to meet with your newly seated Member(s) of Congress – in their home states – to educate them about T1D, and to ask for their support on issues that are important to the T1D community.

JDRF is one of the most effective grassroots advocacy organizations in the country because of people like you. Through the years, you have shared with Congress how T1D affects you, your family, and your community, and these touchpoints have led to continued Federal funding for research, and health 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 new Member(s) of Congress, please sign up now! Your local Advocacy Team Chair will organize the meetings and alert you when there is an upcoming opportunity in your area.
