Do you have a personal relationship to Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia, and a passion for improving research, care and support for others affected by this disease? If so, please consider volunteering to help us engage your elected officials in the movement to end Alzheimer's disease.
Conquering Alzheimer's disease is as much a matter of public policy as scientific discovery. The Alzheimer's Association is leading the fight to end Alzheimer's by advocating for public policies to increase the federal investment in research and improve care and support for people with the disease and their families. By educating and engaging your elected representatives on Alzheimer's, YOU can save lives. No prior policy experience is required, and we will give you all the information, training and support you need to be a great advocate! The time commitment can be small but the rewards can be huge!
Our advocacy volunteers work with their elected officials at the local, state and federal
Educate them about Alzheimer's disease
Engage them in supporting the Alzheimer's Association's public policy priorities
Advocacy volunteers work with other local volunteers and Association staff to strategize, plan, organize and participate in a wide range of activities to educate and engage their elected representatives, including:
Meeting with elected officials
Raising awareness through local media
Sparking social media conversations
Coordinating events and volunteers
Reaching out to partner organizations
