2012 Virtual Advocacy Day

Our annual MS Advocacy and Awareness Day is happening in Columbus on March 27, 2012.  Volunteers from across the state will meet with their policymakers in support of important legislative issues that affect people with MS.

We know that not everyone can travel to Columbus and we need YOU to reinforce our advocacy message from home.  PLEDGE NOW to participate with us virtually. 

This year we will advocate for HB 332 The Ohio Livable Homes Tax Credit. The Ohio Livable Homes Tax Credit, will help families affected by multiple sclerosis (MS) make their homes safer or buy an accessible home.

Here are some ideas on how you can be a virtual MS Activist!

  •  Change your Facebook status on March 27nd to:

“I’m an MS Activist!  Today is Ohio MS Advocacy and Awareness Day.  Ask me how you can JOIN THE MOVEMENT and make a difference in the lives of Ohioans living with MS.”

  •  Change your Facebook picture to the attached logo during the week of March 26-30.
  •  Write a blog entry and share your story about MS and what you’re doing to make a difference!
