I work for a non-profit organization that promotes research into rare genetic diseases. We often lobby Congress for support of our mission through a concurrent resolution.
Congress has so far recognized our work through resolutions several times. It's a really good way to gain recognition and to get our name out in the field and on Capitol Hill.
Of course, the goal is to ultimately have bills passed in support of research into these diseases. But a concurrent resolution is the first step. At least we know that we have Congressmen and women who support our mission.
