Public Policy volunteers Help improve the quality of care and quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families by carrying our message to elected officials at the federal, state and local levels. Communicate with elected officials via petitions, phone calls and other calls-to-action, participate in area events, and share your story. Political experience is not required, and we will assign you to elected officials based on where you live and your interests.
Alzheimer’s Congressional Teams (ACTs) are teams of volunteers committed to advocacy who help to raise their elected officials’ awareness of and support for the Alzheimer’s Association’s public policy goals. Each ACT member’s efforts are crucial to the public policy success of the Association. ACT members work with their team leaders ("Ambassadors") and Alzheimer’s Association staff on advocacy assignments to advance the Association's state and federal legislative priorities and build relationships with a designated member of Congress and staff.
