Be An Advocate
Advocacy is an important part of the Society’s Mission to end the devastating effects of MS. Advocacy is actively supporting the public policy issues and programs that influence the well-being of people with MS. As a Volunteer Advocate, you play a vital role in the Society’s Advocacy efforts because you speak persuasively about these important issues.
Volunteer Advocates become Activists when they intentionally take action to bring about social or political change. The National MS Society is urging its volunteers to be Activists, and we want to help you take action about issues at the local, state and federal level.
You can influence decisions that make a different in the lives of people with MS
