   Alzheimer’s awareness license plates

License Plate

As you know, Illinois is experiencing a severe fiscal crisis, leading the Alzheimer’s Association to focus our public policy efforts on raising awareness. Vehicles outfitted with specialty Alzheimer’s Awareness license plates will have a tremendous impact – raising funds as well as the profile of this critical cause and, in turn, mobilizing our leaders in government and citizens to prioritize Alzheimer’s. 

Our mission of a World Without Alzheimer’s® is a step closer to reality with each policy success we achieve – and Alzheimer’s Awareness license plates are an excellent example of that progress.
