Summer Advocacy Volunteer Hub

Welcome to your portal for this summer's local advocacy. We are very happy to have you join our great community of patients, doctors, and advocates who have given their time to improving care for those living with psoriatic disease.

In August, members of Congress will return to their home districts and states for an extended in-district work period. This is a great opportunity to advocate locally and continue to build relationships with your legislators by requesting a legislative meeting or attending a town hall or coffee in your area. We are happy you are joining NPF for local summer advocacy this year!

Below are links to everything you will need to prepare for scheduling and participating in a local meeting or event with your legislator. If you need assistance, you can email Will Hubbert, Grassroots and Advocacy Manager, at advocacy@psoriasis.org.
