2019 Day on the Hill Briefing Book

This year's Day on the Hill will begin on Monday, 25 February 2019. The National Legislative Office and the National Legislative Committee will host a short briefing on our legislative agenda. The briefing will take place on Monday afternoon at D.C. Lodge #1 and last approximately one hour. The lodge is located at 711 4th St NW, Washington, D.C.

Tuesday and Wednesday, 26-27 February, will be devoted to your meetings with Members from your home states and districts. These appointments should be made in advance! Event participants should make every effort to have their Representative or Senator attend the meeting along with the appropriate staff person.

REMEMBER: The FOP's Day on the Hill event is a key component of our legislative advocacy strategy and our Grassroots Action Network. Having our members here on Capitol Hill&#mdash;sitting down with their elected Senators and Representatives&#mdash;has a real and lasting impact on the FOP's ability to move its agenda through Congress. We are coming off of a very successful Congress, but we need to continue to build on that success and we can't do that without YOU!

Your participation is critical, and while we look forward to seeing old friends and our Day on the Hill veterans, this year we also want to see some new faces. We are challenging our members who do attend to bring along a lodge member who hasn't yet participated in this event. By increasing the number of officers that lawmakers hear from, the greater effectiveness we will have as an organization. Talk about Day on the Hill in your lodge meetings and help us help you by increasing our participation.

We need Congress focused on OUR issues and OUR safety. We need you to help make sure our voice is heard and we need more voices!
