#MEAction Launches its U.S. State Chapter Initiative

We’re so excited to announce we’re growing our community’s impact through the expansion of #MEAction USA’s formal State Chapters. 

#MEAction USA’s State Chapters build local capacity around volunteer engagement, congressional outreach, local and state advocacy, and medical education, and support awareness raising efforts for ME. State chapters also act as laboratories to incubate new ideas for advocacy and outreach: successes in one state can be shared and propagated across the country. We want to build a strong, national, distributed network of patient activists and allies to grow the movement for health equality.

Learn more about the achievements of our State Chapters and how you can start a chapter in your state.

Let’s build this movement from the ground up! By acting locally, we can transform our communities and grow our capacity to make an impact on the national stage. In the coming months, we’ll be organizing planning calls with our nine, established state chapters and offering a rolling application process to bring new states online. As we grow as an organization, our goal is to expand our State Chapters to new states and launch City Chapters in major cities across the nation. 

#MEAction USA’s State Chapters:

  • Arizona 
  • California 
  • Colorado 
  • Florida 
  • Georgia 
  • New York 
  • Pennsylvania 
  • Tennessee
  • Texas

Interested in starting a chapter in your state! Email me at [email protected]. In addition to our State Chapters, #MEAction has 50 State Facebook Groups. The more people that join these Facebook groups, the more connection, awareness and activism will grow within these states. A robust Facebook group is a great way to build towards a State Chapter in your state.
