US Against Alzheimer’s’ is involved in the following activities to help fight Alzheimer's:

  • Demanding an aggressive, transformative federal policy agenda to stop Alzheimer’s by 2020.
  • Building an army of activists whose insistence on a cure for Alzheimer’s is palpable.
  • Providing activists who can take to advance the movement toward our ultimate goal.
  • Working as a network of individuals and organizations through new models of collaboration and movement-building.
  • Recruiting through the LEAD Coalition (Leaders Engaged on Alzheimer’s Disease) at least one million people by spring 2013 to demand that Alzheimer’s be stopped and to call for the successful implementation of the National Plan.
  • Educating public officials to recognize the urgency of this quest and the horrible consequences of inaction.
  • Driving innovation through leadership and partnership to accelerate Alzheimer’s prevention, care and cure.

‘US Against Alzheimer’s’ aims to create strong relationships with Congress, leading researchers, academics, foundations, community-based organizations, philanthropists, health organizations and private funders who share the commitment to stopping Alzheimer’s disease.

‘US Against Alzheimer’s’ has put together an ‘Activist Toolkit’ for those who wish to help advocate for those living with Alzheimer’s Disease and includes advocacy support such as how to write to members of congress, how to make a speech, how to write an op-ed piece and much more.

‘US Against Alzheimer’s’ is also increasing awareness of Alzheimer’s more specifically in the African American and Hispanic communities.
