State Action Day


At state capitols around the country, MS activists, Government Relations Committee (GRC) members and other volunteers convene annually to learn about MS advocacy priorities. Through coordinated in-person visits, they share those priorities with State Senators, Representatives, Assembly members, and other policy makers.

Maryland Action Day

Join us Thursday, February 27 for Maryland Action Day 2014!

On Thursday, February 27, we will speak to the legislators who represent us and ask them to support legislation that is beneficial to people with MS.

Maryland Advocacy Day activities are designed to draw attention to the National MS Society’s priority issues in Maryland including:

  • Stem Cell Research Funding
  • Coverage and reimbursement for non-emergency telemedicine services
  • Protecting in-home and community supports

On February 27, participants will receive specific issue preparation including education and talking points to share with their legislator (various state representatives will be present to speak to the crowd regarding the specific legislation). After this portion of the program, participants will visit with their legislator, which will be followed by a general wrap-up session. A continental breakfast and boxed lunch will be served.

Let your voice be heard! Be a MS advocate!

A continental breakfast and lunch will be served.
