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.

What is Alpha-1?
