Advocacy in Action | Promise to Remember Me
“Constituents of US Congressman Ralph Hall met with him, in his district, as part of JDRF’s ‘Promise to Remember Me Campaign’. For the last ten years, JDRF advocates have met with their Senators and Representatives promoting research funding which will ultimately lead to a cure. As a grassroots group, JDRF advocates are a mighty force. As our Representatives listen to personal stories of living with diabetes from children, adults and families who love someone with type 1 diabetes, they have a better understanding of type 1 and its minute-to-minute dire significance, as well as the need for continued research to find better treatments and ultimately, a cure.”
“This year’s campaign has a goal of 432 meetings with legislators. We are well on our way as this meeting was number 306 and there are now only 118 meetings to go!”
