HNC Legislative Day
Thursday, June 14th, 2018
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!
HNC is a statewide organization, so we need members from throughout the state to come to Raleigh and represent our community with their district representatives.

There will be an optional dinner and training session on Wednesday, June 13th to help prepare you to speak with your representatives.
On Thursday, June 14th, HNC members will have the opportunity to meet with their legislators and staff.
There are some changes this year from prior years: HNC will have a booth at the Bicentennial Plaza to help raise awareness among the general public about issues that affect the bleeding disorders community. The Bicentennial Plaza is located across the street from the NC State Capital between the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences and North Carolina Museum of History. There is a lot of foot traffic which will provide an excellent opportunity to raise awareness. We will begin with a briefing at 8:45am at the HNC booth at the Bicentennial Plaza. After receiving our schedule and appointments for the day, HNC members will walk over to the Legislative Buildings to meet with their legislators and staff.
