#MEAction and Solve ME/CFS Initiative are gearing up for a major congressional action for ME/CFS in Washington, D.C. from May 16 to 18.
If you would like to join us in Washington, D.C. for meetings, let us know by April 4th so that we can make the necessary meeting arrangements with your legislators. Sign up here.
We also want to hear from you if you would like to join the advocacy effort in your home district or by phone.
Our goal will be to gain support from members of congress for multiple key ME/CFS initiatives brewing later this year and to raise awareness of our disease with federal leaders.
The May actions will include:

  • Capitol Hill ME/CFS Lobby Day: Wed., May 17  – the highlight of the overall action
  • District Congressional Meetings, May 8 – 12 (in your hometown)
  • Call-in / Write-in Campaign on May 17th

Stay tuned for further updates and additional details. Email [email protected] for more information.
