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.

Virginia MS State Action Day - Save the Date!

MS Activists from across the Commonwealth will gather in Richmond for an afternoon of training on January 24, 2016 and will meet with state legislators on January 25th. We will be sharing our stories and advocating for greater support for caregivers and increased access to health care.
Please consider joining us for this 2-day event. Your story may be a catalyst for change and together we will make a difference in the lives of the 12,000+ Virginians who are living with MS.
For more information please contact Kevin Dougherty.

If you are unable to attend State Action Day in-person, please sign-up for our Virtual Action Day and support our efforts from home, using social media and email. If you are interested in being a virtual MS Activist please contact Ashley Kenneth.

Maryland MS State Action Day is usually held in Annapolis every year during the winter. Please check back for the 2016 date, or email for more information.
