"I'm an MS Activist"

Have you checked out the National MS Society's federal blog recently? It has a new look and lots of good information to be a better MS Activist. Tonight's blog discusses the approaching deadline for Congressional Committees to submit recommendations for federal deficit reduction to the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction (or "Super Committee"). Most importantly, it gives you as an MS Activist action steps to contact your member of Congress and let them know the importance of MS research programs and maintaining entitlement programs for persons living with disabilities.

Additionally, an earlier blog this month shared the President's proclamation declaring October 2011 as National Disability Employment Awareness Month. The proclamation recognizes the contributions that people with disabilities make every day within our nation’s workforce and society.
