Each year, hundreds of Alzheimer advocates – people with the disease, caregivers, and family members – from across the nation come to Washington, DC to hone their advocacy skills and then share their perspectives, experiences, and recommendations in meetings with their elected representatives. A unique platform of information sharing and learning, the Alzheimer Action Summit truly represents the best of civic engagement in the American political process.
We are pleased to announce our agenda for 2010 includes remarks from veteran political strategist, author and educator Donna Brazile. In addition to gracing several national publications’ “most powerful lists,” Brazile is also the recipient of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s highest award for political achievement. A syndicated columnist and political analyst, Brazile was the first African American woman to manage a presidential campaign in 2000 for then Vice President Al Gore. This seasoned politico, best-selling author and regular CNN and NPR contributor will offer attendees invaluable insights about grassroots advocacy from her extensive experience in local, state and national politics.
