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 on MS and the issues faced by people with MS.
- Advocated for and won an increase in the tax credit allowed for modifying homes in order to make them more physically accessible.
- The National MS Society led more than 100,000 people nationwide to sign the petition to increase federal funding for MS research, and secured a new avenue for MS funding for the first time ever, through the Department of Defense.
- Advocated for House Joint Resolution 341 - declaring the second week of March to be MS Awareness Week in the Commonwealth! Click here to read the resolution.
