    251 Meetings - That’s 47% of Congress!



    Thanks to the hard work of our advocacy community, Solve ME/CFS Advocacy Day was a wild success!

    Across the country you called for ME/CFS research funding, supporting a fast-moving $60m request! 358 registered advocates took part in 251 meetings, touching 47% of Congress in a single day. Over 885 emails and nearly 1,200 phone calls supported our mighty volunteer Congressional meetings teams. All of this while overcoming a global crisis with just four weeks to pull it off.

    Together, we are unstoppable! Congratulations, everyone. Stand tall today.

    And, most of all, thank you! Your support makes all of this possible.

    With heartfelt gratitude,

    Thanks to everyone working on this, especially during this weird time when I expect a lot of attention is being drawn elsewhere.
