Advocacy Day

ADVOCACY DAY

 

March 29, 2022

Each year Life Sciences Pennsylvania provides a platform for our member companies to come to Harrisburg, receive a short briefing on the latest issues, and attend meetings with key legislators and staff.  Although COVID-19 forced us to accomplish this virtually the past two years, it has not changed the need for education and strong advocacy in Harrisburg and we are excited to be joining in person once again!

Now more than ever, it is crucial for our elected officials to know the work the life sciences community does in the commonwealth and specifically how the legislature can make Pennsylvania the best place to do the important work necessary to defeat diseases like COVID-19, improve patient access throughout the Commonwealth.

The hallmark of effective advocacy is the ability to tell your story. You don’t need to study public policy or be up-to-date on the latest policy debates to be effective.  You simply need to have a concise description of your organization, demonstrate your passion for innovation, and explain who it will help.  Realizing that most legislators are not regularly exposed to the life sciences and are not scientists themselves, this is a great opportunity to educate and inform all of our new legislators in Harrisburg.  Additionally, you don’t need to know your way around the capitol building, we’ll have group leaders to guide you along the way.

Your voice is needed in the halls of Harrisburg!
