Today is National ALS Advocacy Day and in Washington D.C., Advocates for ALS are meeting with Congress on Capitol Hill in a Public Policy Conference to let them know how ALS impacts the lives of everyone it touches. They are there to ask for Congressional support in the search to find an end to this disease. While ALS Advocates are in our nation's capitol making our case in person, those of us at home can also help by becoming Virtual Advocates.
Please take a few minutes today to send a letter or an email to your representative in Congress to ask for their support. Click this link to Join the Virtual Advocacy Day, everything is set up to make your participation as easy as possible.
