Join us on Tuesday, March 12 for MS Day at the Capitol in Des Moines, Iowa (299-1 SW Ninth St.) from 9:30 a.m. - 1 p.m., where you can share your story with your state legislators and raise MS awareness. From 9 to 11 a.m. there will be a training and networking event at the Lucas Building Cafeteria (directly east of the State Capitol and the cafeteria is located on the sixth floor). From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. meet with legislators over lunch in room 116 of the State Capitol.
As a person affected by MS — when it comes to important issues like MS research and health care affordability — you have the power to impact critical decisions made by lawmakers.
The recent election brought many new faces to state capitols across the chapter. With health reform a reality, and these new officials in office, your voice as an MS advocate is more critical than ever.
One of the most meaningful ways to unleash your power as an advocate is to participate in your local MS Day at the Capitol. This is an opportunity to learn how to be an effective MS advocate, meet others who are passionate about MS-related policies, and educate legislators about the disease.
