In Partnership with
THE A-LIST and LEEZA’S CARE CONNECTION
Welcome to the A2A Alzheimer’s Advocacy Resource Center (ARC), an outreach project of the nonprofit Adversity 2 Advocacy Alliance, in partnership with The A-List and Leeza’s Care Connection, aiming to help individuals impacted by Alzheimer’s step into Alzheimer’s advocacy.
We hope you’ll be inspired by our A2A Advocates impacted by Alzheimer’s, and we invite you to listen to our A2A Spotlight features and A2A 1-on-1 interviews sharing powerful stories of how individuals impacted by Alzheimer’s are turning adversity into advocacy.
While you’re here, we hope you’ll join our Alzheimer’s Messages of Hope campaign. Give hope. Get hope. All in 30 seconds. And if you’re interested in sharing YOUR story with the help of one of our professional journalists, let us know!
Oh, and please be sure to add your name to our Wall of Allies, so you can show your support for our advocates. If you’d like, we’ll also send you our free monthly e-newsletter.
