This is the EDC’s 12th year of lobby days. We are an institution on Capitol Hill. Members of Congress and their staff know us. In Washington, we have put eating disorders on the map. Members of Congress and other national organizations whom are our allies trust us because of the relationships we have built over the years of meetings, briefings, and education we have done on the Hill with you. So join us September 18 and be part of this movement. You can make a difference; you can find your voice!The Congressional briefing this year will be titled “Fear of Fat and Weight Stigma: Why We Need to Address the Intersection of Obesity and Eating Disorders.” Our panel of speakers will educate you and motivate you to make a difference.
If you haven't lobbied before, don't worry we will train you and prepare you. You'll go to the Hill with confidence and as part of a team. To see how lobby days work click here for our video that explains it all.
Joining us on the Hill is an incredibly empowering experience. You will be able to make your voice heard and make a difference for eating disorders policy. If you’re looking for motivation watch our video ‘I Stand For FREED’ here
