Add your VOICE to ours

The Alzheimer’s disease epidemic is here. More than 5 million people in the United States already have Alzheimer’s, the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death, and there’s still no way to prevent, cure or slow its progression. A strong national network of grassroots advocates communicating with elected officials is vital to achieving our mission and raising awareness of Alzheimer’s issues in Congress, state legislatures and local communities. Join hundreds of thousands of Alzheimer’s advocates who are making a difference.

Alzheimer’s advocates play an important role in improving the quality of care and quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s disease and their families by carrying our message to elected officials at the federal, state and local levels. Advocacy is using your voice with elected officials to fight Alzheimer’s disease. As an advocate, you will be invited to:

  • Receive regular updates about current legislative and public policy issues. 
  • Communicate with elected officials via petitions, phone calls and other calls-to-action. 
  • Participate in advocacy and policy-related events in your area.
  • Share your story with other advocates.

Get involved today! Join the Alzheimer Advocate Network. Whoever you are, wherever you live, there is something you can do to make a difference. Make your voice heard by joining with thousands of Alzheimer advocates nationwide. Join in helping achieve our vision of creating a world without Alzheimer’s disease. The time to act is now — your advocacy today can help us make history tomorrow. Go to alz.org/advocate
