Advocacy volunteers at State Advocacy Day 2020

If you have been personally affected by Alzheimer's, dementia or Mild Cognitive Impairment, your community needs YOUR voice to help end Alzheimer's and all other dementia, and improve care and support for all those affected.

By joining as a volunteer for the Alzheimer's Impact Movement, the Alzheimer's Association’s grassroots network, you’ll be provided the tools you need to easily email, tweet or call your lawmakers. Urge their support for policies to accelerate research, drive risk reduction and early detection, and improve access to quality care and support.

We’ll train you to advocate in a variety of ways, some of which take just an hour or two every few months. Whatever your experience and availability, we’re eager to have you on our advocacy team!

Please be sure to describe your connection to Alzheimer's disease in your response; applications without this information may not receive a response.
