New Mexico, Santa Fe - Public Policy Conference 2013
Make YOUR Connection, and Make a Difference!
Politics is all about connections, and your story can connect lawmakers to the MS cause. Activists who are willing to tell their story to their own legislators can personalize the issues, educate, inform, and bring critical perspective to MS priority legislation.
Make your connection at the 2013 New Mexico Public Policy Conference on January 30. Join other MS Activists from across (state) to learn how to share your story and participate in face-to-face meetings with your legislators in this one day conference, designed to train you to take action as an MS Activist.
Conference registrants will be asked to participate in a pre-event teleconference training on MS Activism (details to be shared at a later date). National MS Society staff and MS activism leaders will contact registrants and work with them to schedule and coordinate legislative visits. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided on the day of the event.
