Let Your Voice Be Heard

Tell Members of Congress more needs to be done for people with arthritis.

The 2015 Arthritis Foundation Advocacy Summit is less than a month away and we need every one who has arthritis or who cares for someone with arthritis to take action! You are a crucial part in the push to ensure that the voice of people with arthritis is heard on the Hill. You don’t even have to travel to Washington D.C. to get involved in advocacy.

Our Virtual Summit starts with a good old-fashioned letter-writing campaign, and that's where you, and your friends and family members, get involved! The letters we receive will be hand-delivered to Members of Congress when we visit their offices during the Advocacy Summit. The letters will help amplify our voice and ensure that people with arthritis and related diseases have access to timely, affordable, game-changing medications to treat arthritis.

Please spread the word and complete your letter today. It's as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Go to http://www.arthritis.org/advocate/advocacy-summit/virtual-summit/letters.php and take a couple of minutes to personalize the letter and add a photo (optional). Please note that our deadline is March 18
  2. Email the letter to advocacy@arthritis.org
  3. Then ask two friends or family members to do the same. It's that easy!

 Each and every one of us, who are dedicated to improving the lives of people with arthritis, must speak up on the vital issue of access to optimal care.
