JDRF Advocacy has built a nationwide network of Advocates dedicated to finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. Congress provides more than $3 for every dollar that JDRF donates to type 1 research! Time Magazine called JDRF "one of the nation's most forceful disease advocacy groups." When it comes to fighting type 1 diabetes, JDRF's strength lies in our numbers and the ability of our Advocates to work together to build bonds--bonds with one another, as well as with our Members of Congress. These relationships strengthen our community, provide support for those who are living with type 1 diabetes, and deliver our message--the need for a cure--faster and more effectively.
