Advocating for Life Without Limits
Great Lakes Hemophilia Foundation (GLHF) provides public policy advocacy on behalf of, and in partnership with, the bleeding disorders community. We educate government officials about the impact that existing laws and pending legislation may have on someone living with a bleeding disorder.
Wisconsin Legislative Day
Join us in Madison as we spend the day with our state legislators and educate them about life with a bleeding disorder and issues that impact our community in Wisconsin. You’ll learn how state government impacts bleeding disorders policy issues and how you can make a difference through advocacy.

National Hemophilia Foundation’s (NHF) Washington Days is an annual opportunity for people affected by bleeding disorders to advocate at the national level and learn effective grassroots advocacy techniques. Join others from bleeding disorder communities across the country as we meet with legislators and staff on Capitol Hill to share stories, ask questions and voice concerns. This helps lawmakers who shape national healthcare policy better understand life with a bleeding disorder.
Washington Days Travel Grants
GLHF offers travel grants each year to cover the cost of registration, hotel accommodations and airfare for up to two advocates from the Wisconsin bleeding disorders community. If you are interested in heading to Washington, D.C. with GLHF to impact the legislative process, contact Karin Koppen at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We need your voice now more than ever. If you’re interested in participating in advocacy at a local level by sharing your story and representing the bleeding disorders community, please consider joining GLHF’s Advocacy Committee. We’ll share the many ways you can get involved and help us advance our mission of advocacy. Please contact Karin Koppen, email@example.com.
