Advocacy in Action

MOAA's annual advocacy event brought members from across the nation in contact with their lawmakers April 26 in Washington, D.C., to address critical topics on MOAA’s legislative agenda.  The event marked the first in-person effort on Capitol Hill since 2019.

Below are some pictures of our efforts on the Hill from 2023
