State Action Day

Share

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, all MS State Action Day events will be held virtually in 2021. This will not stop us from being here for people with MS and fueling breakthroughs. We are finding new and creative ways to make sure everyone involved in the MS movement has a way to connect, to feel supported and informed and to raise funds and awareness—no matter where you are. Stay tuned for information about exciting virtual opportunities.

Around the country, MS Activists take action to raise awareness and urge state lawmakers to make policy decisions that will help people with MS live their best lives. At these MS State Action Days, activists learn about the National MS Society’s advocacy priorities and couple these priorities with their own stories as they connect with State Senators, Representatives, Assembly members and other policy makers on behalf of themselves and all people affected by MS. 
 
Virtual MS State Action Days include:
  • A training webinar
  • A live virtual kickoff celebration
  • Opportunities to connect with lawmakers through email, social media, and phone calls
  • There are no age, experience, or knowledge requirements to participate.
You are the leading expert on you or your loved one's MS. We will provide the information you need to share your story and make a difference. Join the MS Activist network now to be notified of an MS State Action Day in your state.
