Success is when people with MS and those connected to the cause speak out on issues important to them, ask for change, and work with public officials to address them in a positive way.
Thanks to MS activists, we have successfully…
· Educated state legislators and DC Councilmembers on MS and the issues faced by people with MS in all three jurisdictions
· Advocated for and won an increase in the tax credit allowed for modifying homes in order to make them more physically accessible in Virginia.
· Had $10.4 million allocated for stem cell research in the state of Maryland in FY 2011.
