Oklahoma Government Relations Committee

The Government Relations Committee (GRC) is a group of active and dedicated volunteers who cultivate and maintain relationships with their legislators at the federal, state and local level. Annually, the volunteer GRC identifies, compiles and approves a list of priority legislative issues and leads the planning of their State Public Policy Conference held at the Capitol. By engaging legislators, the GRC raises awareness and advocates for policies and programs that will benefit those people living with MS and their families

Do you have questions about the GRC or the advocacy program? Contact Mireya Zapata at 512-340-2703 or email for additional information.
