With this year's Annual Connect Conference in Washington, DC, PPMD wanted to take advantage of being in our Nation's Capital and ensure that our Duchenne community leaves an indelible imprint on federal policymakers.
Friday morning of the conference will kick off with a End Duchenne Rally at the foot of the Capitol, followed by an opportunity for all attendees who have signed up for the Rally & Hill Day event to have a meeting with the office of a Member of Congress. Those who sign up for the Rally & Hill Day event will be trained and provided all the tools needed for a fun and successful morning.
This is a great opportunity for new advocates who are interested in getting a taste of PPMD's Annual Advocacy Conference that happens every February. This is also a chance for our seasoned advocates to help mentor new advocates and further the relationship you have created over time.*
Let's ensure that anyone within eyesight of the U.S. Capitol on June 19th knows that it is time to End Duchenne.

Thursday, June 18th, 5.40 – 6.30 PM: Advocate Training
Friday, June 19th, 9.00 – 12.30 PM: End Duchenne Rally & Hill Day
