DETAILS: Join families and epilepsy advocates from across Illinois at the Capitol Building in Springfield to advocate for people impacted by epilepsy. The Danny Did Foundation, along with the Epilepsy Foundation Affiliates of Greater Chicago, Rockford, and Southern Illinois, will be meeting with our State Representatives to address the need for programs and services to be provided to people with epilepsy.
The group will meet at the 10:30 at the Stratton Cafeteria (lunch provided) for group assignments and speakers. Transportation is available from the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago for those who are registered, but space is limited. Our State Representatives need to know how much we need their support! Bring your family and friends and let your story be heard.
FREE REGISTRATION: Registration is free via this page on the Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago website. Registered participants will receive an Advocacy Day Packet, complete with legislative materials and tip sheets on lobbying.
