Advocacy in Action 2021

Join MOAA for our signature annual advocacy event, where members from across the nation connect with their lawmakers to address critical topics on MOAA’s legislative agenda.


Traditionally an in-person event that brings hundreds to the Hill, this will be MOAA’s second year going virtual. In 2020, the advocacy mission continued despite the pandemic, with 19,000 letters of support reaching every congressional office and hundreds of members conducting meetings with their legislators and staffers via online platforms. 


Check back at for ongoing updates on this year’s three advocacy topics: Comprehensive toxic exposure reform, TRICARE Young Adult health care coverage parity, and a basic needs allowance for military families facing food insecurity. You can read more about each issue via the links on this page, and click here for some tips on reaching out to your lawmakers.
