Virginia State Advocacy Day 2013-VAX

 

January 28 is Virginia State Action Day

On January 28, 2013, let's raise our voices. We must work together to break down barriers to care, improve access to quality health services, and make MS therapies more affordable. We must fight for disability rights, MS research funding, and long-term care resources. Whether you only have a few minutes or want to make a commitment, you can be an MS activist.

I only have a few minutes....

I have some spare time....

  • Share your MS story on your personal blog
  • Send an email to your state legislator
  • Call your state Senator or Delegate to talk about an issue you are passionate about
  • Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper telling your story and asking for change on one issue (http://nmss.capwiz.com/nmss/dbq/media)
  • Call a talk radio show and ask for change on one issue

I can make a commitment....

Email AdvocacyVA@nmss.org for any of the following opportunities:

  • Become an advocacy volunteer
  • Visit your state or federal legislators in their local office
  • Become a spokesperson and share your personal story with others
  • Help us recruit more MS activists at the next Bike MS or Walk MS event
  • Visit a self-help group or other program to talk about the power of advocacy
  • Become a subject matter expert and serve on a local task force
