Scottish Election! Ask your MSPs to support people with ME

If you live in Scotland, please join our campaign to ask your MSPs to pledge their support for people with ME.

The Holyrood elections are coming up on 6 May 2021 and we want to make sure that MSPs are aware of ME and the desperate need for support.

There are more than 20,000 people with ME in Scotland, with no access to specialist services and little understanding from health professionals of how they can help. You can help make MSPs aware of this and ask them to commit to being an ally of people with ME.

#MEAction Scotland started this campaign following the publication of a Scottish Government report in January 2021 which showed how little progress had been made since the first report on ME in 2002.

Please send your MSPs an email telling them what it is like to live with ME or care for someone with ME and asking them to pledge their support for people with ME.

 Black ME Voices: Q&A with Teona Studemire

With it being Black History Month, it was crucial to me to make sure we spotlighted someone from the ME/CFS and Long COVID community who is Black. Being Black and disabled is an entirely different experience. Not only do we deal with ableism, but we also deal with racism, especially medical racism. According to the
