|MS Activists meet with staff from Sen. Cantwell’s office|
"As MS activists, we shared our stories and thanked the Senator for supporting NIH funding and joining the MS Caucus. We asked for support for CDMRP and FDA funding, co-sponsorship for the Ensuring Access to Quality Complex Rehabilitation Technology Act, and her vote on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Nico took our materials, took notes, and reminded us of the Senator's “yes” vote for the treaty the previous times it was up for a vote. All-in-all, he was quite supportive and understood the needs of the MS community. We got a photo for the blog and booked a successful meeting."
Congratulations to our activists on a successful visit! If you’re interested in conducting a meeting with a local, state, or federal legislator, contact us.
