Alpha-1 awareness is a year-round endeavor, but during the month of November we ask EVERYONE to become engaged and increase #Alpha1Awareness. To help you get started, we have created some free materials that you can download and print, share on social media and share by email. Do your part to increase #Alpha1Awareness in your community, around the country and on social media!

Virtual Alpha-1 Lobby Day
Tuesday, November 17, 2020
The Alpha-1 Foundation invites you to participate in our Virtual Alpha-1 Lobby Day, where we will meet with our elected officials to discuss the priorities of the Alpha-1 community.
A virtual lobby day allows the Alpha-1 Foundation to gather the community around the latest issues, and provides a channel to have your voice heard, highlight the priorities to both supporters and key lawmakers while taking action to make a difference. A Virtual Lobby Day is just as effective, and the bonus is that even more people can participate from the safety of their homes.
