2014 California Advocacy Summit

Join fellow advocates at the California State Capitol to make your voice heard and advocate for the more than 5.2 million Californians living with arthritis. Attendees will tour the Capitol, receive training on how to meet with their legislator, what the California Arthritis Foundation Council’s policy priorities are, and then put what they learned to practice during legislative visits.
