ALZ Advocacy: Why It Matters And Where to Start

As we begin our work to prepare for the 2022 legislative session at the state-level, and with our efforts to engage our federal Members of Congress on legislation impacting Americans with dementia in full swing, now is the perfect time to learn more about what you can do to get involved in our legislative advocacy efforts. 

Our legislative advocacy efforts have secured key victories for Americans living with dementia in recent years, including passage of the Improving HOPE for Alzheimer’s Act and the Promoting Alzheimer’s Awareness to Prevent Elder Abuse Act. Moving ahead, we are focused on efforts to support America’s caregivers, to build a better path to dementia care, and to increase diverse participation in Alzheimer’s and dementia clinical trials, among other efforts.

If you are interested in advocating for research funding and policies, programs, and services that improve the lives of those impacted by dementia, we are ready to help you take the first steps! On August 12 from 4:30-5:30 p.m., we will be explaining the power of using your voice to advocate for the Alzheimer’s and dementia community. 

Join us as we:

  • Explain the role & power of legislative advocacy 
  • Review our successes and the work ahead of us
  • Equip you with tips, resources, and next steps to become an advocate
  • Give you the opportunity to connect with other advocates in Georgia, North Carolina, & South Carolina.

Register below. Meeting details and Zoom information will be sent to all registrants ahead of the event.
