A message from the President of the National MS Society (June 4, 2020):

Quote
We are outraged by the injustice and violence that led to the death of George Floyd and too many others in our country. This is not OK. Not today or any day.[/size]We realize that our heartbreak and anger are not enough. We must do better. We must do more.The National MS Society is committed to creating a world where everyone, of every race, can live a life free of MS and free of injustice and inequality.We recognize the effects of MS on the Black community are magnified by the inequities in our healthcare system. We will not be successful in finding the cure until we confront and address these inequities. The disparities that keep Black people from receiving today’s care must not keep them from receiving tomorrow’s cure.We are a movement by and for people affected by MS.We are listening.We stand with you today and every day.Cyndi ZagieboyloPresident and CEO, National Multiple Sclerosis Society[/color]
