  3. Advocacy

    MS Activist

    Raise your voice and advocate for MS. At the National MS Society, we relentlessly advocate for federal, state and local government change essential to people with MS. We must work together to break down barriers to care, improve access to quality health services, and make MS therapies more affordable. We must fight for disability rights, MS research funding, and long-term care resources.

    We need individuals to share their personal stories and reach out to public officials for change that benefits people living with MS as well as others with disabilities and chronic illnesses.  There are multiple opportunities to raise your voice when you join the MS Activist Network.

    Learn more about how you can advocate for change.
