On July 25, as part of Genetics Day on the Hill, Filmmaker Joanna Rudnick traveled to Washington DC to meet with Senators, legislative aides, and other policymakers to advocate for the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), which is on the verge of passing after 12 years.

The next evening, Joanna spoke and screened scenes from In the Family as the opening plenary of the 2007 Genetic Alliance National Conference. The Genetic Alliance is the leading advocacy organization for thousands living with genetic conditions.
