In-Person Capitol Hill Day – March 8 & 9

For the first time since 2019, we are back together on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. to urge members of Congress and their staff to join our mission to drive efforts to cure psoriatic disease and improve the lives of those affected.

Whether you are traveling to D.C. or participating virtually, this page has everything you need to know.
