My MLA and ME outreach campaign
Intro paragraph here .. . . (is this a first time/repeat campaign, etc.), maybe mention background, etc. *note - reaching out to a local MLA can be intimidating, let's indicate here that it's not)
Also tailor the language on this page to the audience likely to be coming to this page.
The purpose of the initiative is to:
form positive and friendly relationships between BC Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) and members of the ME community, including family, friends and caregivers;
build understanding of and support for ME issues with MLA's;
influence political policy regarding ME through enhanced understanding;
increase access to the political realm when ME issues arise in the future;
Recruit ME champions in the legislature in order to help us address the dire unmet needs of British Columbians living with ME.
The goal of the campaign is to provide appropriate, timely, respectful and effective healthcare for BC's ME patients.
How you can help
Be an advocate - encourage patients and family members share their stories of life with ME with members of BC’s Legislative Assembly.
Create opportunities for MLA's to develop personal relationships with constituents who have ME or who have personal experience with ME.
Ensure MLA's have a local resource person to discuss ME- related issues when they arise.

Should we list out other results to date of campaign, other MLAs that have been contacted, etc. Maybe in a table format, or a map of BC format (which is more fancy or complicated) Perhaps this will provide motivation to others?
