2019 Consumer Voice Hill Day

July 18, 2019 - July 18, 2019        Washington, DC

Consumer Voice is hosting its first-ever summer Hill Day this year on July 18, 2019.  Join with your fellow consumers, family members, and advocates for this day of advocacy in Washington, DC!   We will give you the guidance and support you need to set up and conduct your own visits.

Hill Day 2019: 9:00 am - 3:30 pm

During the Consumer Voice Hill Day, you will meet with your members of Congress and advocate for better quality care and quality of life for nursing home residents and other long-term care consumers.  Consumer Voice will provide issue briefs and talking points to help you deliver a strong  message on several topics, such as  preserving the revised federal nursing home regulations and increasing funding for the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program.

Our voices are stronger together.  Don’t miss this opportunity to advocate for the long-term care consumers in your state and around the country!  Find instructions for the Hill Day here.

Annual Open House and Jackie Koenig Memorial Internship Fundraiser: 4:00 - 6:00 pm

After you’ve finished meeting with your members in Congress, you are invited to stop by the Consumer Voice office for our Annual Open House and Jackie Koenig Memorial Internship Program Fundraiser.  Mingle with Consumer Voice staff, Board, and friends, while enjoying light refreshments.
