CHA hosts advocacy days in Washington, D.C., for patient families and other children's hospital stakeholders.
Advocacy day programs often feature educational briefings, remarks from lawmakers and Washington insiders, opportunities to network among fellow patient families and peers at other children's hospitals, and a chance to carry forward a unified message to Congress in support of children's health.

Upcoming advocacy events
2021 Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Week
June 13-18, 2021
While we all look forward to safely attending events in person, we'll conduct a virtual Family Advocacy Week again this year given the unknown timeline for COVID-19 vaccinations in children. Like this past summer's event, customized digital collateral will be produced for each patient champion. We encourage you to start thinking about a family or families you'd like to invite to participate. Registration will open March 1, 2021.
