EDC NATIONAL LOBBY DAYS
The EDC brings advocates together twice a year for our National Lobby Days as the most effective way to educate Members of Congress and push for important policy goals like the Anna Westin Act. Join us for an EDC National Lobby Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC where your voice makes a difference in the lives of those affected by eating disorders. By addressing eating disorders at the Federal level, you have the opportunity to help everyone impacted by eating disorders. You will learn to tell your story and share your experience in a way that leaves a notable impact on Members of Congress and staff. We need YOU to be part of these efforts.

*Hear what advocates say:
"Lobbying with the EDC, meeting the wonderful people that are all part of this organization and informing Members of Congress about eating disorders continues to amaze and impress me. I remember that first time I went to lobby day thinking that I didn’t even know people could enter these historic buildings and go to the offices of our legislators, and actually meet them in person on occasion. It was at that point, that I began to comprehend exactly what we were doing and that we were being heard and influencing decisions that ultimately could make changes."
