Forum 2015
Our advocacy volunteers at the Alzheimer's Association National Advocacy Forum in Washington, DC, April 2015

The Alzheimer's Association needs your help to advance public policies to accelerate Alzheimer's research and improve care and support for people living with Alzheimer's and their families.

Join your local Alzheimer's Congressional Team and participate in different advocacy activities such as meeting locally with your legislators and their staff, writing letters on policy issues and attending community events. By sharing your story about the impact of Alzheimer's or other dementia in your own life, you can contribute to an effective and growing advocacy movement that has more than quadrupled federal research funding since 2011.

Advocacy volunteers are also encouraged to participate in our annual advocacy days in Sacramento (February 4 or 5) and Washington D.C. (March 22-24).

We will provide all the training and support you need, even if you have never written or spoken to a legislator before.

Contact us today to learn more about this unique opportunity to build your citizenship skills and help create a world without Alzheimer's!
