Sharing our perspectives and expertise with members of Congress is an integral part of advocacy, which is why hundreds of industry representatives will head to Capitol Hill on Nov. 19 during our Legislative & Policy Forum.
But if you are unable to attend, there are other ways to get involved. Social media enables real conversation between lawmakers and people like you, in real time no matter the distance. Below are samples of social media posts that will allow you to bring your story to the Hill alongside those advocating in Washington, D.C.
