American Legion Auxiliary members work to keep veterans' issues in front of legislators, strengthening our mission to serve veterans, the
military and their families.

Each year, the Auxiliary convenes its Washington DC Conference in conjunction with The American Legion’s annual meeting in our nation’
s capital to review The American Legion’s legislative priorities and advise members how to be better advocates for those issues with their
own state’s Congressional legislators. Armed with information and enthusiasm, Auxiliary members “take to The Hill” to make their voices
heard. The Legislative program periodically provides members with specific reasons to contact their legislators and provides them with
summaries about issues of importance to our veterans.

While we may think that one voice may not make a difference on its own, that one voice added to the voice of others with the same goals
and sentiments quickly becomes a collective power of influence that can impact the decisions of our elected officials. Joining together,
Auxiliary members can and do make a difference when they advocate for veterans, the military and their families.
