Want to learn what a Capitol Hill briefing is all about?  Interested in learning more about advocating for research funding?

Join us on Friday, February 16th from 2-3pm ET

President Trump is expected to send his proposed budget for the upcoming fiscal year to Congress on Monday, February 12.  SAVIR is focusing efforts on reminding Congress of the important contributions that injury and violence research provide to the health of our communities nationwide.

To this end, the network of ICRCs is hosting a Congressional Briefing entitled, “Addressing the Opioid Epidemic: Leveraging Partnerships, Research, and Practice” on Tuesday, February 27th from 11:30am – 1pm ET at the Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, D.C.  We want to encourage SAVIR members to support these efforts through attending the briefing or contacting their Congressional representatives to urge them to attend.

In order to build capacity among our membership, SAVIR is hosting a webinar on Friday, February 16th from 2-3pm ET.  The webinar will review SAVIR’s messaging around the budget requests and examples of interactions with policy makers and their staff.
