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.
Save the date for the 2016 Washington State Action Day: February 2, 2016!
Both new and experienced activists are welcome! Join us in Olympia to learn about the Society's legislative priorities and meet with state legislators. You will be empowered to tell your story to your elected officials, ensuring they understand the needs of people with MS. We provide you with the training and resources you need make a difference.
By advocating on behalf of the more than 12,000 people with MS in our state, you will be a leader in the movement for a world free of MS.
In years past, we've seen tremendous success from State Action Day. Your voice has helped pass laws that:
increased funding for accessible transportation,
increased the number of MS neurologists in Washington,
ensured health coverage for hundreds of people with MS, and
protected accessible parking privileges.
