Virtual Advocacy Day A Success!

As part of our first ever Virtual Advocacy day, more than 230 e-mails were sent through the Society’s website encouraging legislators to adopt a state budget that addresses the needs of individuals living with chronic illnesses and disabilities. Specific requests addressed maintaining appropriations for the Home and Community Block Grant which funds in-home and community-based services and the North Carolina Housing Trust Fund for additional independent and supportive-living apartments for people with disabilities. These emails reached eighty-eight of our state legislators at a time when they most needed to be reminded about MS needs.

Thank you to everyone that contacted their legislators and made Advocacy Day a success. Your help is invaluable to us in increasing the impact of MS Activists across the state.
