Become a Legislative Advocate

As a citizen and a constituent, you are in a powerful position to advocate for dystonia. 

You have the power to influence policy makers responsible for the areas of government that impact the dystonia community. The DMRF needs your help! Help us educate and influence legislators and government officials who influence, for example, how much money is allocated to medical research year, access to treatments, and other issues that impact people with dystonia. Advocates educate legislators about the needs of the dystonia community.

The DMRF is a member organization and provides staff support to the Dystonia Advocacy Network, a team of dystonia organizations working together to give the dystonia community a voice in Washington, DC.  You can become an empowered dystonia advocate - the community needs your voice!

For more information on the Dystonia Advocacy Network, go to or call the DMRF at 800-377-DYST (3978).
