State legislators will be meeting with the MS community on January 30, will you be there?

The MS community is coming together in Olympia on January 30 to share our voices with state legislators and we want you to join us. This is the day for us to bring the stories of people living with multiple sclerosis to our state's elected officials, reminding them of the responsibility they have to meet the needs of our citizens, especially those with MS.

Sign up online or call 1-800-344-4867.

Please mark your calendar and make plans to attend this important day. If you haven't joined us for a Day of Activism in the past, or want to learn more about the issues we will discuss with legislators, we ask that you also participate in a conference call on Tuesday, January 17.

People with MS are at risk of losing health care benefits and we need to show up in order to convince legislators that they shouldn't be balancing the budget on the backs of people with MS and other disabilities. If we aren't talking with our legislators, the needs of the MS community won't be heard.
Sign up to join us in Olympia

For those who want to help, but cannot attend, we still want to hear from you. We are collecting stories from people in the MS community to share with legislators and we need your story. Tell us what you think legislators need to hear about your life with MS. Your short, 100 hundred word message to your legislators will support the efforts of all those who will be there in person. We know not everyone can travel to Olympia and there are powerful stories out there – make sure your thoughts are heard!

We look forward to seeing you in Olympia!
