Why NPF Capitol Hill Day Matters

A special message from NPF advocates

A selfie of Savanna Braun, NPF volunteer

I participate in Capitol Hill Day because it lets me meet with my members of Congress and explain my concerns with and wishes for America’s health care system. Lawmakers can’t make good policy that serves their constituents unless they understand what we really want. - Savanna Braun

Howard Chang, NPF Volunteer and Advocate

I participate in Capitol Hill Day because it lets me share my story and advocate for a more just healthcare system. As someone who has participated in NPF advocacy efforts that brought important step therapy protections to my home state of California, I know just how much our voices can accomplish when we work together. - Howard Chang

Headshot of Jordan Ellefsen, NPF Volunteer

Participating in Capitol Hill Day lets me speak on behalf of members of the community whose perspectives would otherwise go unheard in Washington. With the virtual format of this year’s meetings now letting me participate from home, it’s easier than ever to make my voice heard. - Jordan Ellefsen

Speak Up

You deserve affordable, timely health care. Speak up for all those living with psoriatic disease and make a difference in your life and beyond.
