I will present a summary of the annual HEP advocacy trip jointly run by the Fermilab Users Executive Committee, the SLAC Users Executive Committee, and US-LHC Users Association. This annual trip consists of roughly 50 scientists who meet with representatives from more than 70% of the congressional districts spread across both chambers and parties. I will discuss the impact of this trip and the positive reception the P5 report has received and its effect on the appropriations process.
