Mission Statement

Genetic Alliance increases the capacity of advocacy organizations to achieve their missions and leverages the voices of millions of individuals and families living with genetic conditions. We build communication and mentoring networks, design and sponsor rigorous training courses, and provide infrastructure that strengthens and empowers our 600 member organizations. We are committed to capacity building in all communities. The technical assistance we provide to advocacy organizations results in measurable growth: increased funding for research, access to services and support for emerging technologies.
