JDRF 2022 Promise to Remember Me Campaign

‘Promise” is underway! This grassroots effort provides a meaningful way for the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community to maintain relationships with Members of Congress. JDRF Advocates schedule and conduct meetings in the summer / fall on a state and local level to share their personal connections to T1D – articulating the financial, medical, and emotional costs of the disease.

Sign up for a Promise Meeting! Our JDRF Northern California Advocacy Co-Chair, Missy Reller is leading this campaign in our area and is here to help facilitate meetings. If you are interested in meeting with your local Members of Congress, please contact Missy at mlenmark@hotmail.com or 650-776-6193. Learn more at promise.jdrf.org.

>>> Current Advocacy Alert! Email your U.S. Senators TODAY to advocate for the INSULIN Act to make insulin more affordable.
