Promise to remember me. Advocating for a world without T1D.

JDRF Children’s Congress delegates (L-R) Matan, a delegate from Isreal; Thomas (CO); and Ellie (CO);  show a member of congress CGM technology available thanks to JDRF efforts.

The JDRF Promise to Remember Me campaign was established in 2000 as a meaningful way to strengthen relationships between members of congress and their constituents in the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community. During ‘Promise,’ JDRF Advocates meet with their members locally in their home states and congressional districts. During these meetings, JDRF Advocates share their personal connection to T1D – articulating the financial, medical, and emotional costs of the disease. Most importantly, they highlight the essential role members play in securing federal funding for T1D research and supporting health and regulatory policy that improves the quality of life for those affected by T1D, until we find a cure.

This biennial campaign is a critical step towards reaching a world without T1D. Through your efforts, we seek to meet with every member of congress, asking each to promise to remember the T1D community when they vote on legislation that will improve lives and ultimately lead to a cure for people with T1D.

If you are interested in meeting with your local representatives in the coming months, email Kelli Raleigh at
