EDC Spring Lobby Day is April 3!

The EDC is excited to announce our spring lobby day will be April 3! Mark the date on your calendar and start planning your travel for this exciting day. As usual, we’ll have a welcome reception on the evening before, April 2.
If you’ve never been to an EDC lobby day, please consider coming. It is an amazing opportunity to tell Members of Congress and their staff your story.  When you share how you have been touched by eating disorders it can be an incredibly empowering experience. You will make a difference. You will be able to influence eating disorders policy at the highest levels of our government. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to meet others who have walked this road, who share the burden of and triumph over eating disorders, and who are continuing to fight for better federal laws around eating disorders.
If you’ve been before, then come again. You know that successful lobbying takes persistence. We come. We come again. We come in larger and larger numbers to make our voice heard.  Reunite with old friends and colleagues, and meet new ones. Encourage those attending for the first time, and be encouraged by using your voice to empower yourself and others to make a difference.
Come to lobby day and make a difference!
