State Action Day

Share

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, MS State Action Day events will continue to be held virtually in 2022. 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, feel supported and informed, and have an opportunity to raise funds and awareness—no matter where you are.

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 MS State Action Days, activists learn about the National MS Society’s advocacy priorities and pair them with their own personal experiences as they connect with State Senators, Representatives, Assembly members and other policy makers on behalf of all people affected by MS. There are no age, experience, or knowledge requirements to participate. 
 
MS State Action Days include:
  • A virtual training session to learn more about issues affecting people with MS and our policy priorities
  • A chance to connect with other MS Activists
  • Opportunities to connect with lawmakers through email, social media, virtual meetings and phone calls
  • Practice telling your personal story about how MS has impacted you or someone you love.
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.

Dates, registration links, and additional information about 2022 MS State Action Days will be shared here and with MS Activists through email when registration opens.
