Come and advocate for Duchenne directly with members of Congress.
PPMD's Annual Advocacy Conference, held in the first quarter of each year, is the only officially organized gathering on Capitol Hill for the Duchenne community. Families affected by Duchenne will storm Capitol Hill on February 22nd and 23rd to meet with members of Congress and their staffers asking them to focus federal resources on Duchenne.

Don't be intimidated. Before you meet with your members of Congress, PPMD will provide you with extensive training and support, so you go into your meetings feeling empowered and prepared.
