United Against Ataxia 2021

What Happens at Hill Day?

A group of advocates will meet with Congressional Members to discuss issues important to the Ataxia community. This year’s topics will include:

  1. A Senate Resolution to declare September 25th as National Ataxia Awareness Day (S.Res. 339)
  2. The addition of “Hereditary Ataxia” into the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP)
  3. Accelerating Access to Critical Therapies (ACT) for ALS (H.R. 3537/S. 1813)

Your voice is needed to pass these important initiatives! No experience needed! NAF and FARA will be running a Hill Day Advocacy training webinar prior to the event. Access information will be sent to registrants at a later date.

Registration for this event will close on September 20, 2021. Join us! Register today!
