AONL Advocacy Day gives you the opportunity to talk directly to your legislators about the challenges facing your patients and community. We encourage nurses from all levels and settings to participate in Advocacy Day.
AONL 2020 Advocacy Day on June 4 is going virtual. For anyone who has registered to attend the event in Washington, D.C., your program registration is automatically cancelled and a refund will be issued. The Hyatt Regency Washington cancelled all existing registrations through June 10. Please stay tuned for information on how to participate in AONL’s virtual advocacy day. Please contact Stacey Chappell if you have any questions.
The day of Advocacy Day you will have three to four meetings scheduled with representatives from your state. You will be joined by attendees from your state. AONL will schedule the Hill meetings for all attendees.
After the meetings have concluded, AONL hosts a congressional reception on Capitol Hill. Network with fellow attendees and hear from congressional members from the nursing caucus.
Before meeting with legislators, all AONL Advocacy Day attendees will receive training on how to personalize their stories and deliver a unified message.
