The Solve ME/CFS Initiative’s second annual ME/CFS Advocacy Day is May 15th in Washington, D.C. This unique event will bring together people with ME/CFS, their loved ones, advocates, scientists, clinicians and caregivers from across the country to share their unique stories with members of congress, and demand action and research funding for myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome.
Travel to DC is required to participate. SMCI hopes to provide travel awards to assist with transportation costs. Hotel blocks are available. Visit the ME/CFS Advocacy Week page for additional details.
SMCI’s ME/CFS Advocacy Day is a full-day Capitol Hill experience bringing you face-to-face with YOUR members of congress and their staff to talk about ME/CFS. The day will begin at 8:30am with a short welcome briefing, refreshments, and training at our very own “basecamp,” a private room on Capitol Hill, just for our ME/CFS Advocacy Day participants. This “basecamp” will be available throughout the day for advocates to rest, refresh, and regroup between meetings.

  • Free to participate – Registration is required. We recommend registering by April 1st.
  • SMCI will provide: All needed materials for meetings with Congress, Advocacy Training, scheduling of meetings with YOUR representative and/or senators, a special rest area on Capitol Hill to make the experience as easy as possible.
  • No experience necessary – groups will be customized to everyone’s experience level and physical capacity.
  • Free Social events, gifts, Unrest screening, and more!

We are powerful when we come together in one voice.
Register today to join us and make your voice heard!
