Make your voice heard!

Alzheimer’s is the second leading cause of death in California, and is the only cause of death among
the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured, or even slowed. There are no survivors. The time
to act is now.

As an advocate, you will work directly with your elected officials to make sure Alzheimer’s and dementia are on the top of their agenda. Advocates will build relationships with their Members of Congress and State
legislators to educate them on the compelling reasons to make take action to prevent and prepare for the national Alzheimer's crisis now.

Advocates have the opportunity to do any or all of the following:
- Meet and interact with their Member of Congress and their staff
- Attend our annual State Advocacy Day in Sacramento (February 5)
- Attend our annual National Advocacy Forum in Washington, D.C. (March 22-24)
- Write letters to the editor
- Build awareness through social media
- Work with a team of other volunteers in your area who are also passionate about ending Alzheimer's
- Use your personal experience as a powerful force for positive change!

We will provide all the training and support you need, even if you have never written or spoken to a legislator before. The only requirement is that you have direct personal experience with, and are passionate about, Alzheimer's or other form of dementia.
