Join us in a national effort where we fill congressional district and state offices on March 18! Coinciding with our annual Hill Day in Washington D.C., advocates will be making noise across the country to ensure Congress understands the value of Community Health Centers for patients and communities.
Congress will not be in session during this time so it is the perfect time to build those key relationships with members of Congress and their district office staff. You can also invite members to visit your health center or attend a Town Hall hosted by your member!
