#MEAction State Chapters have long been participants in Advocacy Day and find connecting with members of congress to be of vital importance.

#MEAction partnered with Solve ME on Advocacy Day 2019. Featured are advocates from California meeting with then Senator Kamala Harris’s office.

“As a person living with ME/CFS, I participated in Advocacy Day 2019 along with my husband and teenage son. It was an incredibly empowering experience to know that as a severely ill and disabled person can have power to effect direct change in my life and the lives of many others. Making my voice and the voice of millions of others heard was truly rewarding” Carly Goldberg, #MEAction PA State Chapter Leader

“We need to make our collective voices heard. If they don’t hear us, they won’t do anything. And there is plenty we need them to do.” Art Mirin, #MEAction CA State Chapter Leader

“When most days you feel utterly powerless to create change in your life, Advocacy Day is a beacon of real empowerment” Timbre Livesay, #MEAction GA
