Advocacy Volunteers Needed

The work of ending Alzheimer's takes a team approach.  We need help making face-to-face meetings, writing letters in community papers, and sending Tweets and Facebook post to legislators!!  The Alzheimer Ambassador Program is designed to enhance the Alzheimer’s Association’s federal government relations efforts by building relationships with decision-makers and their staff & holding them accountable to their commitments to fighting Alzheimer’s.

The Congressional Advocacy Team consists of 2-3 individuals assigned per congressional district to assist their Ambassador in making visits and contacts with the MOC (Member of Congress). The time commitment for this role would most likely be 1-2 hours per month. If you are interested in this role please send a short letter of interest to
