Become an Advocate
As an ALS
Association Advocate, you can help change the laws and policies that affect
thousands of persons with ALS and their families.
An ALS advocate is:
- Someone who is passionate to be a foot soldier in the battle to defeat ALS.
- Someone who feels moved to get involved with government at all levels to draw awareness
and resources to the people affected by this disease.
- Someone who is willing to step outside of their comfort zone to effect real change in
the way our government responds to the needs of the ALS community.
You can make a difference in state or federal advocacy by:
- Attending National Advocacy Day in June 2019
- Attending a State Advocacy Day in your state capital
- Participating in an in-district meeting with your member of Congress or state legislator
- Writing a letter to the editor for your local paper
- Writing a blog post or creating a video to share about ALS issues
- Sending emails to lawmakers to seek their support
- Making phone calls to lawmakers
- Taking time to make additional visits to state capitals
