Advocacy

We focus on educating, advocating, and mobilizing all members of Congress in a bipartisan fashion to benefit people with ALS. 

Walk ALS is the official Walk event for ALS United and is the #1 way to unite in the fight against ALS.

ALS Awareness Month

May marks ALS Awareness Month, and our goal is to raise awareness about this disease as much as possible!

Consider penning a letter to your local newspaper editor highlighting disease facts and the support ALS United Greater Chicago can provide to those affected. 

Or ask your mayor to make a mayoral proclamation. 

Or maybe even drop sunflowers off at local businesses and educate them on ALS!

How about sharing our website on your social media profiles or in your email signature?
