Attend the 2023 Day on the Hill
6-8 February 2023 | Washington, D.C.
THE FOP NEEDS YOU IN WASHINGTON! The new Congress will be sworn in and convene in January and we are going to need to up our engagement and work hard to get our anti-crime and officer safety agenda though the 118th Congress. There will be a lot of new faces and major changes in Congressional leadership, particularly in the House which will be controlled by Republicans.
The FOP’s annual Day on the Hill is a unique opportunity to have face-to-face interactions with the Members of Congress that represent YOU in the nation’s capital. We need make sure that our priorities—the “Social Security Fairness Act,” the “Protect and Serve Act,” and support for local and State law enforcement fighting the national epidemic of violent crime—become their priorities as well. Our future success are based on our ability to motivate and mobilize our grassroots to make sure our message gets through. Participation in this event is just a part—but an important part—of the FOP’s advocacy strategy. We need our members to build, strengthen, and sustain their relationships with their Senators and Representatives. Members of Congress need to know that FOP are active voters who will hold them accountable for their actions.
