State Action Day

Share

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.

Join the MS Advocacy team and represent the needs of the MS community at the State Capitol!  The 2014 Oklahoma Public Policy Conference brings together people from across Oklahoma who have been affected by MS and who want to speak up and create positive change.  Share your personal story of how you have been impacted by MS and ask for support on key issues during meetings with your legislators at the state capitol.

Never done advocacy work before?  Don’t worry!  We’ll make sure you have all the information and support you need to participate with confidence and have a positive experience!

Participants will prepare for the exciting and empowering role of MS Activist through a  pre-conference webinar. Conference activities will include a morning breakfast meeting of MS Activists at the Oklahoma History Center, and then meetings at the nearby state capitol building throughout the remainder of the day.  Lunch will also be provided.

An informative training session will take place via teleconference one week prior to help participants prepare for their meetings at the capitol.
