Make Your Capitol Hill Appointments Now!

Your Members of Congress will be in town during the conference and we urge you to set up appointments with your delegation before you leave home.  There are many other conferences going on at the same time as ours, so it is important to make your appointments now with your Members and their staff in order to secure your spot on their calendars. Note that our Breakfast on Capitol Hill will take place Tuesday, February 26, from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. (location to be announced). Please plan your Senate visits first but no earlier than 10:15 a.m.

To access contact information for your Members, go to www.senate.gov (Senate) and www.house.gov (House). Capitol Switchboard:  202-225-3121.

Requesting a meeting with others from your state will help secure a meeting with your Member, so we encourage you to coordinate visits with other conference attendees.

Check out FRAC’s Tips for Capitol Hill Visits (pdf) before scheduling appointments with your Members of Congress. And, if you missed our Lobbying 101 webinar, you can view the recording and slides.

For any other assistance with the lobby day, contact Lauren Badger at FRAC or Effie Craven at Feeding America.

“I’ve been attending the National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference for over 10 years now and each year the content has been relevant to the policy work I am currently doing and informs the work I will begin. I leave inspired and with a pocket full of new tools, new allies and renewed inspiration for the hard work that waits for me back at home.”
