Advocacy Ambassador Logo - Side By Side (WPBDF)

We are looking for individuals who are interested in supporting the advocacy efforts of the Pennsylvania Bleeding Disorders Foundations throughout the year. Do you have a desire to meet with legislators to help influence decisions on policies that affect individuals and families living with bleeding disorders?

If you answered yes, we would like you to join us in Harrisburg, on Monday, May 6 and Tuesday, May 7, 2024!

On Monday, May 6, you will receive training to become a Volunteer Advocacy Ambassador and learn about the issues we will be discussing with legislators the following day.

On Tuesday, May 7, we will head to the capitol to meet with legislators to advocate for the needs of the bleeding disorders community. Each advocate will be teamed up with other advocates to attend meetings in small groups.

If you have any questions, call 724-741-6160 or send an email to info@wpbdf.org.

This training is open to individuals 18 years and older and mature adolescents and teens. No childcare will be provided at this event.

This is an overnight training and advocacy day. Training begins at 3 pm on Monday, May 6. On Tuesday, May 7, we will head to the PA state capitol where you will have the opportunity to meet with your local legislators.

The Foundations will provide dinner on Monday, a hotel room at the Harrisburg Hilton on Monday night, and breakfast on Tuesday morning.

Transportation assistance is available upon request.

The FINAL day to register is Friday, April 5!
