CENTRAL AND EAST EUROPEAN COALITION
TO HOLD ADVOCACY DAY ON CAPITOL HILL
ON APRIL 18, 2013
Washington, DC – The Central and East European Coalition (CEEC) will hold its annual Advocacy Day on Thursday, April 18, 2013. The Advocacy Day will include briefings, meetings with Members of Congress, an evening event on Capitol Hill, and a reception.
On Thursday morning, beginning at 9:00 am, an informational briefing session will take place at the United Methodist Building, on 100 Maryland Avenue, NE (on the corner of Maryland and 1st St., NE, across from the Supreme Court), with presentations on issues of concern to the respective communities represented by the CEEC in the United States. These objectives and goals will be outlined in the spring 2013 version of CEEC’s policy paper, which will be made available prior to the event.
During the day-long event, participants in the Advocacy Day will meet with members of the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate and their staffs to discuss key policy issues as outlined in the policy paper. About 20-25 visits are being planned with the offices of influential Members of Congress, including with relevant committees.
After the Congressional meetings, participants are invited to attend a debriefing and light reception, sponsored by the CEEC at the United Methodist Building on 100 Maryland Ave., NE.
The CEEC encourages the active participation of all our communities in promoting the need for greater U.S. foreign policy engagement in Central and Eastern Europe.
