IDC faced significant challenges in organizing their advocacy Hill Day, a crucial event where volunteers meet with congressional offices to advocate for legislation aligned with the organization's mission. The process of arranging these meetings was fraught with difficulties, primarily due to the unavailability of congressional staffers and the frequent misdirection to inappropriate contacts within congressional offices. This inefficiency hindered the organization's ability to effectively schedule and conduct meetings vital to their advocacy work.


IDC turned to LegiStorm Pro to overcome these challenges. LegiStorm's comprehensive database provided IDC with direct access to the relevant contacts in each congressional office, enabling them to streamline the meeting arrangement process. This tool was pivotal in identifying the correct congressional staffers responsible for issues pertinent to IDC's mission and those handling office scheduling. LegiStorm's up-to-date and accurate information significantly expedited IDC's advocacy preparation.


The use of LegiStorm Pro was instrumental in IDC's success. The organization effectively amplified its advocacy efforts for several key pieces of legislation, including H.Res. 599. IDC also successfully organized two Advocacy Days, engaging volunteers and advocates in meaningful legislative discussions, which would not have been possible without the efficiency brought by LegiStorm. Furthermore, IDC's advocacy efforts led to the acquisition of cosponsorships for many legislative initiatives, marking significant milestones in their mission.
