You will also be aware of the Realtors who are in town. They will be clearly tagged and and not shy while vying for time with the same legislators you want to see.
Will they be aware of all the ALS advocates there? Will they know you by looking? Will they think about Lou Gehrig's Disease when they see you waiting for a traffic light?

Put stickers on your luggage. Tell the desk clerk about ALS when you check in. Wear or carry something that says "ALS" when you ride the Metro. Ask a Realtor if he or she knows what ALS is. Tell the waiter that you're in town as an advocate for Lou Gehrig's Diseases. Get the word out.
