Raising Our Collective Voice
Join AFP DC in Virtual Lobby Week April 26-30. We are organizing as many members as possible to engage with their federal representatives. Our counterparts from across the country will also participate to ensure our members of Congress are aware of policies that are key to fundraising success and to develop partnerships with our elected officials.
