It has been a busy 24 hours in DC and today will be even busier as our group of 100 advocates head to the Hill to advocate for global health. All in all we have over 85 meetings scheduled with our members of Congress. The energy, passion and enthusiasm of these men and women is inspiring and I can hardly wait to be a part of real live democracy and let my voice be heard.
Here are a few pictures to share from my first day in DC. I had a short break and was able to catch part of the Chinese New Year celebration right down the street. The rest of the day was followed by meetings and dinner where we were continually inspired by the work ahead of us.
