You can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Alzheimer's.

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.

State Champions are advocates who engage with legislators right here in their home state of North Carolina, to focus on the issues that affect the lives of our communities in our great state. Champions are trained on the basics of advocacy engagement, the North Carolina legislative process, and how to share your story with your elected official. Champions schedule legislative visits and invite legislators to events in their home districts (like a Walk to End Alzheimer's, or a community education program). Additionally, they attend our State Advocacy Day in Raleigh in the spring, leading small groups in legislative meetings at the state capital to drive home our state priority asks.
