  3. Advocacy

    District Activist Leader

    By serving as a District Activist Leader, you will drive change by deepening relationships between elected officials and the MS movement. Your story will create a personal imprint in the mind of the elected official about the impact MS has had on your life and within your community. The relationships you build and the stories you share will help to ensure that when an elected official hears the words multiple sclerosis, he or she feels compelled to take action.

    Build and foster critical relationships with your elected officials (in your legislative districts) that will help the MS movement influence policy issues at the federal, state and local levels.

    Serve as the liaison between Society government relations staff and your local MS community. This volunteer position will provide opportunities to help grow our activist network, speak at community events about our policy priorities and help to identify issues to be addressed via advocacy.
