What is an Advocate?

 

WHAT IS ADVOCACY?

Advocacy is working together as individuals to actively support a cause, policy or idea. As our priority, we are most concerned about those pieces of legislation, initiatives, or propositions we feel will directly impact people with Alzheimer’s disease, their families and/or the caregivers. We look at local, statewide and federal legislation.

WHAT IS PUBLIC POLICY?

Public policy is the development of laws and regulations that impact consumers in the marketplace.

WHY ADVOCATE?

  • To bring the concerns and needs of individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other related disorders and their families to the awareness of elected officials
  • To influence and impact public policy issues
  • To have many voices-one message.
