What A Day…

ME Advocacy Day 2019 was a huge success!

#MEAction and Solve ME/CFS Initiative were very excited to partner for this year’s Advocacy Day and we were blown away by everyone’s response and involvement. With over 200+ people registered to attend in person and even more of you taking action from home, we can’t say enough for how amazing today was!

This year the focus of Advocacy Day was to ask members of Congress to vote in favor of a ME Resolution in May, support/sign onto the 2 Appropriations Letters, and commit to posting a picture on ME/CFS Appreciation Day–May 12th.

Yesterday there were over 140 meetings ! As we stormed the halls of Congress, you could see people in the ME Advocacy Day blue t-shirt everywhere!
