Announcing New Congressional MS Caucus

Ask Your Representative to Join
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is pleased to announce the formation of a new Congressional Multiple Sclerosis Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives. Congressman Russ Carnahan (MO) and Congressman Michael Burgess (TX) have stepped forward as leaders and co-chairs of the new MS Caucus. For the Caucus to be effective, we now need additional Representatives to join. Click here and enter your ZIP code to ask your Representative to join the MS Caucus.

The MS Caucus provides you, as an MS activist, with champions in Congress to count on for leadership and support of MS issues. It will help bolster our advocacy efforts and give us an even more effective presence on Capitol Hill.

The bi-partisan MS Caucus will serve as a forum for Members of Congress, their staff, related organizations, and individuals to discuss critical health care, disability, research, and other issues affecting people living with MS and other conditions. It will raise awareness and seek creative solutions to help us move closer to a world free of MS. Congressional caucuses are common and focus on a variety of issues from specific disease groups to wine making, but the MS Caucus is the first of its kind.
