About the Event
Park Hyatt Washington D.C.
March 4-6, 2024
Make your voice heard at FARE's Courage at Congress 2024: Advocate for a Cure legislative fly-in! If you or a loved one has food allergy, this event provides the opportunity to come together for two days of advocacy, education, and accomplishment. Together we can make positive change for the more than 33 million Americans living with food allergies.
*While we are currently at capacity for the event, it is possible that some guests may decide over the next few weeks not to come to Washington, D.C. We will then select individuals from the waitlist.
Interested in staying at the Park Hyatt?
For those attending and interested in staying at the Park Hyatt, registration closes on Monday, February 12 at 5:00 p.m. ET. However, we urge you to book your room as soon as possible, as rooms are expected to go quickly.

We want to make sure you have a wonderful experience coming to Washington, D.C. While our agenda is being finalized, we want to share with you event information to help you plan your trip.
On Monday, March 4, we would like all participants to try to arrive at the hotel by 5 PM ET as our opening night program starts earlier this year. We anticipate Monday night’s panels to conclude by 9 PM and guests will be served dinner free of the top-nine allergens.
Tuesday, March 5, is dedicated to learning about the issues and hearing from fellow advocates, members of Congress and staff, as well as senior-level FDA officials. All participants will have the opportunity to practice their talking points prior to meeting with their elected officials and staff on Wednesday. FARE anticipates providing at least two top-nine free meals and snacks throughout the day.
Wednesday, March 6, is our big day! On that morning, we will gather at the Park Hyatt and board buses to take us up to Capitol Hill where we will all come together for a picture on the steps of the Capitol before heading to our congressional meetings. We will try our best to ensure that all first-time attendees are partnered with either a more experienced advocate or FARE staff when going to their meetings.
In addition, we have also rented a townhouse on the Hill near the House office buildings where participants will be able to stop by, eat a top-nine free snack, and rest between meetings. We anticipate that your luggage will be stored either here or back at the Park Hyatt during your time on the Hill.
Because Wednesday’s schedule is predicated on when the congressional office can meet with us, we encourage you to plan your return trip home for after 6 PM, as in the past we have had meetings start as late as 4 to 5 PM.
Finally, for our Mountain West and West Coast guests, it will make sense for you to stay another evening at the Park Hyatt or a hotel you have already selected. For our stipend recipients from these areas, we will cover an additional hotel night for you.
If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com and we look forward to seeing you in March!
