Earlier this week, we held our first ever Platinum Ambassador Assembly in Washington, D.C. The Assembly is a meeting for our most highly engaged advocacy volunteers to hone their skills, meet other Platinum Ambassadors from around the country and share their stories with members of Congress. Our Junior Ambassadors and future leaders – volunteers committed to achieving Platinum Ambassador status in 2018 – were also in attendance to learn, share their stories and fight for the over 54 million Americans who are living with arthritis.
After a full day of planning and learning new strategies, our group went to Capitol Hill on Tuesday, March 13. They met with their lawmakers, walked the halls and proudly wore green while telling their stories. Below are a few of highlights from our incredible volunteers:
Thank you so much to everyone who participated in the Assembly in D.C. and from their homes. We are so proud of our volunteers for bravely sharing their stories. If you’re interested in becoming an Advocate, visit our website to learn more!
