3-7-2023 ALSA Action Alert
|It’s that time of the year again when your members of Congress will decide how much they will fund critical programs for the ALS Community. We are holding a webinar for all advocates to make sure you and everyone impacted by ALS are empowered with the latest information and tools to make your voices heard! Find out how you can advocate for new federal dollars for ALS Research. Register to join us for our advocacy webinar on March 21, 2023 from 12:00-2:00pm ET (11:00am – 1:00pm CT, 9:00am-11:00am PT). You will learn what federal programs need new funds for ALS research and how you can lobby your Senators and Representatives.|
|It is critically important that people with ALS, their families, and the entire ALS Community advocate together with our U.S. Representative and Senators to secure funding for ALS research and improve federal programs. Your advocacy helps Congress understand the real-life impacts of ALS research funding that lead to new treatments for the ALS community. To take action with your members of Congress, please register to join us for a webinar on March 21, 2023 from 12:00-2:00pm ET (11:00am – 1:00pm CT, 9:00am-11:00am PT). During the advocacy webinar, you will hear from volunteer leaders, members of Congress, experts in ALS research, the ALS public policy and advocacy team, and most importantly, how you can request your members of Congress to sign this year’s “ALS Research Dear Colleague” appropriations letter to support ALS research funding. We hope you are able to join us! Disclaimer: **We anticipate this to be a widely attended event and we may reach registration capacity before the event. The event will be recorded and shared online for viewing should you be unable to join us live.|
