The Roll on Capitol Hill is United Spinal’s annual policy event where members go to Capitol Hill and educate legislators on policy that impacts wheelchair users. This year was the 8th annual Roll on Capitol Hill (ROCH) and it was the largest event so far with over 100 wheelchair users rolling the halls of our nation’s capital buildings.  It is one of my favorite advocacy events of the year because of how much I learn and the expertise I am exposed to. Please contact me or someone at United Spinal Association if you are interested in becoming involved.
