Americans for Homeopathy Choice will host its second Homeopathy on the Hill event at the Hyatt Regency Reston in Reston, Virginia April 20 and 21, 2021.
Some 300 motivated homeopathy activists who include retailers, practitioners, educators and consumers are expected to attend. During appointments on Capitol Hill they will deliver their message to hundreds of members of Congress about the importance of keeping the full range of homeopathic medicines available to the public.

This is a critical time for homeopathy. The FDA is threatening to move toward a regulatory framework that would threaten all of homeopathy. So far, the homeopathy community through Americans for Homeopathy Choice has been able to advance our perspective and engage the FDA in a serious and fruitful discussion about the future of homeopathy.
Our friends in Congress have helped make that possible by pressuring the FDA to enter into serious discussions. We continue to need Congressional support to persuade the FDA to adopt a sensible framework that both protects consumers and assures their continuing access to all of homeopathy.
Your support of Homeopathy on the Hill exposes you to the most dedicated advocates for homeopathy from across the country. It also helps to advance our common goal of safeguarding the freedom to choose homeopathy for all Americans.Sponsor NowSponsorship FAQs
“Thank you everyone for working so hard in DC. I don’t know about y’all, but I had the time of my life! I had no idea it would be so fun to talk to politicians about something I’m so passionate about! Talk about life changing! I learned a lot about myself for sure. Homeopathy for the win!”
“I just finished my meeting with Representative Stauber and he said he is interested in seeing the legislation and learning more about it. He was very nice. I am very hopeful that we have found an ally!”

DC is a wonderful place for families and children, and if you are bringing your family, we have provided resources on this page to help you plan a great experience for them. As far as the Homeopathy on the Hill Event goes, the following three activities may be appropriate for your family members:
Address to monument: 1300 Corregidor St NW, Washington, DC 20005, United States
*Be sure to take time and review the details of these three activities on our itinerary. We encourage you to determine if your children would be a good fit for these activities. For example, some younger children may find the tours to be too long, and the evening Museum Event may be too late for some kids. But if you feel it’s a good fit, by all means include your family!
Unfortunately, the following activities are not well-suited for children and families:
We sincerely hope you understand that we are not able to accommodate families at this training. We need to make sure that everyone who needs training gets it.
There are 3 airports in DC, and we recommend checking prices for each:
Best option: National (DCA) is the nearest one to DC and has a metro station attached to it. 2nd best option: Washington Dulles (IAD) about 26 miles from DC. 3rd option: The Baltimore Airport (BWI) is 31 miles to DC. Where can I stay?
Because hotels and lodging is so expensive in DC, many of our attendees are opting to stay with local friends (or friends of friends) or to find an Air BnB.
If you would like us to connect you to other women/moms who are booking and grouping themselves together in Air Bn’Bs please fill out the form available on the following link. Sharing an Air Bn’B room with others generally costs approximately $25-$50 a night. Please register for the event first before asking us to connect you to a lodging group. After registering, head to Lodging in DC.
Note: When it comes to registration, there are various optional activities such as DC tours, but the critical dates/activities are: (1) Monday night training dinner on April 8 & Tuesday Congressional Luncheon in April 9= $42* and (2) Tuesday night Magic Pills Screening on April 9= $35*
*Ticket Prices go up after Feb. 25
Generally, the closer in you are to the White House and the National Mall, the safer the area is. Very generally, areas that have an “SE” suffix after them aren’t as safe as areas with an “NW” suffix. Absolutely avoid any “SE” area south of the Anacostia River. Some of Capitol Hill has an “SE” suffix, though, and it is quite nice; those areas are within 5 blocks or so of the US Capitol. Areas with an “NE” suffix can be nice, provided you are not more than 3-4 miles north of the National Mall. Much of areas with an “NW” suffix are good, but if you go too far north they can become less nice, too. This advice is conservative and some may think it is too cautious, but we want you to enjoy your time in Washington, DC. Please ask us if you have any questions before booking a place to stay.
If you prefer to stay at a hotel, we recommend the following accommodations which are nearest to our two major events: The Congressional Briefing a lunch on April 9th and the Magic Pills Screening on that same evening.

Unfortunately, Samuel Hahnemann was born during cherry blossom season and this has complicated the event (let’s hope the flowers are blooming so you will at least get that benefit!) Hotels have very strict rules during cherry blossom season. If we blocked out a set of rooms, and didn’t fill those rooms, we would have had to pay a penalty fee that we could not afford. Also, our research showed that many of our attendees would be staying with friend or friends of friends, or that they would schedule an AirBnB. For this reason we did not schedule a block of rooms. But, if you do want to stay in a hotel, we did do a lot of research and found you excellent hotels that are centrally located to our events.
