Advocacy Volunteers play a vital role in the Alzheimer’s Association efforts to strengthen federal, state, and local policy maker commitment to end Alzheimer’s disease. Volunteers serve as the Alzheimer’s Association primary messengers for their member of Congress. They work directly with our staff to build relationships with their member of Congress through personal contacts, meetings, and other activities.

We encourage those with the disease to participate. Individuals in the early stage of Alzheimer's disease and other cognitive impairments are among our most powerful, influential advocates. A person who is living with Alzheimer's and chooses share his/her story not only sends a powerful message to legislators at the state and federal level, but helps remove stigma and negative assumptions associated with Alzheimer's disease. Current and former Alzheimer’s caregivers also make great advocates.

We will provide you with all the training and resources to have a successful volunteer experience, plus we have regular committee meetings to keep in touch.

Advocates are needed throughout the eight county area our office serves: Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Yolo, Amador, and Nevada.
