As Veteran's Day approaches, The ALS Association's Advocacy Department is launching a letter-to-the-editor campaign to raise awareness of the connection between ALS and military service and build support for our cause on Capitol Hill. Therefore, we have prepared a sample letter that you can easily send to local media outlets.

To view and send the letter, simply select Take Action and follow the onscreen instructions. The Media Guide tool will identify all media outlets serving your area and you can select the local publications (up to five at a time) to which you would like to send the letter.

Please customize the letter to include your personal story or that of a local veteran living with ALS in your area. Such personal accounts demonstrate how important this issue is to the local community and increase the likelihood that your letter will be published.

In addition to raising awareness of ALS and the connection to the military, the letter-to-the-editor is another way to recruit and mobilize advocates and to engage Members of Congress on these critical issues. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this important tool leading up to Veteran's Day on November 11.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please contact the Advocacy Department at [email protected] or toll free at 1-877-444-ALSA.
