The 2023 National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference is coming soon, which means Lobby Day is coming, too! We’ll be updating this page soon with information about scheduling Hill visits in-person and virtual lobbying opportunities.
Last year’s conference featured a virtual lobby day. Attendees scheduled virtual meetings with their Members of Congress and staff advocating for policy priorities detailed throughout the conference. Some state groups chose to schedule additional meetings in the days following the conference.
Looking for tips for virtual lobbying? Check out a recording of our pre-conference webinar, Virtual Lobbying is Here to Stay. Organizing meetings with others from your state elevates the likelihood that your Member of Congress will attend your meeting.
Leave behinds, or one-pagers outlining our legislative asks, ensure that elected officials and their staff remember the important anti-hunger policies discussed during your meeting. Updated resources will be available in the weeks before the 2023 conference.
