Educate the Media


Your voice and story are amplified by connecting with and using media to tell your story and talk about issues that are important to you. For example, you can write a letter to the editor or contact local radio. Learn more below.

Letter to the editor

A letter to the editor is an easy way to share your story about how multiple sclerosis has affected your life with the public and call for action. Write a persuasive letter, be thoughtful and polite. Be sure to ask for the action you want. And be brief. Editors are mostly likely to publish a letter no longer than 150-250 words. Remember to include your full name and address.

Local radio

Write out what you want to say before you call your local talk radio. Then keep dialing until you get through. When you do, share your story about how multiple sclerosis has affected your life and be positive. Be clear and concise about the point you want to make. Don’t engage in argument. Say what you want to say, then say "thank you for listening" and hang up.
