Become an Advocate Today!
Use your voice to help secure continued Federal funding for critical T1D research, inform health and regulatory policy, and improve the quality of life for those impacted by T1D, until we find cures.
Special Diabetes Program Funding
More than $75 million in T1D research funding for the Special Diabetes Program (SDP) was included in the CARES Act, extending it through November 30, 2020. Thank your Members of Congress today!
JDRF 2023 Children’s Congress
Applications for JDRF 2023 Children’s Congress are now being accepted! Youth with T1D are encouraged to apply for this once-in-a-lifetime experience to engage in leadership and character-building programming, and to share their stories on Capitol Hill.
Advocates in Action Council
The Advocates in Action Council is a group of young adults who are business professionals, community leaders, and engaged students. These up-and-comers actively support the advancement of JDRF’s advocacy priority areas, and through their involvement, they drive meaningful progress on our path to cures for T1D.
Promise to Remember Me
Help us virtually meet with Members of Congress this summer to give voice to those impacted by T1D, and to highlight the essential role Members can play in supporting our community.
I’m The Type
Use #ImTheType to share what type you are – like the mama-bear type or the live-my-best-life type – because we know that type 1 diabetes does not define you.
