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 27, from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. at the Washington Court Hotel on Capitol Hill. 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.

For specific staff contact information or to find out who from your state will be attending the conference, contact Yosan Kubrom or Carrie Calvert. 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 Carrie Calvert at Feeding America.

“This is ‘the big show’ for anyone working to end hunger in America. I’ve been attending for a decade, and I’m still learning something new every time. It’s easy to develop tunnel vision in our work; the policy conference opens up my thinking, and reminds me that I am part of a national movement. It can be frustrating building progress in what feel like regressive times. The policy conference renews my commitment, and reminds me how many others share it.”
