Hill Visits

 

On the afternoon of October 4, from 2:30-5:00 pm, you will have the opportunity to advocate for women entrepreneurs by scheduling meetings with your elected officials. To set up a meeting with your elected officials or their staff, you will need to call their DC office. You can find their contact information by clicking here for your Representative and here for your Senators. Due to the volume of requests, it may take a few days for a response. If you have trouble getting in contact with an office, please email us for assistance. We look forward to your efforts echoing WIPP’s message around Capitol Hill!
