Advocacy is an important part of our Chapter's mission. We are proud to join with our PALS to advocate for the needs of people with ALS and their families.
Each May, the ALS Association holds an Advocacy Day and Public Policy conference in Washington, DC. We meet with every legislator representing our service area—22 in all—to educate them about ALS and urge their support for The ALS Association's Public Policy Priorities.
