Alzheimer's Advocacy in
Take Action! Become an Advocate
Conquering Alzheimer’s is as much a matter of public policy as scientific discovery, and we need your help to change the future of this devastating disease.
As an advocate, you will be invited to engage public officials and policymakers in a variety of ways, urging their support for critical Alzheimer's legislation and policy changes. Whether you prefer sending emails to legislators, posting updates to Facebook, or hosting events or even meeting in-person with your elected officials, there are many ways you can make a difference as an Alzheimer's Association Advocate.
Current Action Alerts
Alzheimer's is a devastating disease that cannot be ignored by federal policymakers. Our goal is to see that the federal government takes bold action now to confront this growing crisis. Urge your elected officials to enact public policies that provide better health and long-term coverage to ensure high-quality, cost-effective care for the millions of people who face this disease every day.

Letters to the Editor
Letters to the editor help to engage legislators in supporting our policy priorities by exposing the issues to their constituents in local newspapers. We encourage all volunteers to write a letter to the editor to their local publication and mention their member of Congress. For current talking points, please contact us.
Here are some excellent examples of letters to the editor written by our Advocates that have been published:
