HNC Legislative Day

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017
Raleigh, NC

This is a time of change and you can make a difference. The bleeding disorders community is diverse in many respects including political views. One thing all members have in common is the need to stand as watchdogs—as individuals, for our families, and for our community—on topics that may have an impact on those living with bleeding disorders.

One continuing focus of the annual HNC Legislative Day is to continue building awareness and relationships among our North Carolina State Representatives and the bleeding disorders community throughout the state. As the date gets closer, the HNC Advocacy Committee will determine what specific issues may impact people affected by bleeding disorders in NC. How can you do your part to aid this effort? Tell your story to members of the North Carolina Legislature at Hemophilia of North Carolina’s Legislative Day!

There will be an optional dinner and training session on Monday, May 1st at the Hampton Inn & Suites Raleigh Downtown. HNC members traveling more than 30 miles for this training will be provided a hotel room upon request.

On Tuesday, May 2, HNC will have a booth in the Legislative Building at 1100 Court (first floor) to help raise awareness among the legislators and general public about issues in the bleeding disorder community. We will begin the day here with a briefing at 8:45am. After receiving our schedule and appointments for the day, HNC members will meet with their legislators and staff.

This is a phenomenal learning opportunity for our school-age children. We have found that most schools will allow the kids an excused absence for this event, but parents should check in advance with their child's teacher. We can also provide a letter of support for the parents to give to the school.
