Solve M.E. Vice President of Advocacy and Engagement Emily Taylor recently attended the #MillionsMissing protest in Washington D.C., an event organized by #MEAction to highlight the fact that millions are being disabled from post-viral disease, including Long Covid & ME/CFS.
Emily was inspired by her mother Stephanie’s decades long battle with ME/CFS.
“When I told my mother, who has struggled with ME/CFS since 2008, that I had participated in a public protest for ME/CFS, she said she wished she could have joined me. And that’s why I did it, because she was too sick to be there.”
Following her participation in the Millions Missing civil disobedience action on Monday, Emily returned to Capitol Hill to discuss current and future legislative solutions with key Congressional champions, including Senator Markey and Representatives Bergman, Beyer, McGovern, and Swalwell. Stay tuned for more updates about how you can help pass the COVID-19 Longhaulers Act (which contains provisions for medical education including ME/CFS), the CARE for Long COVID Act, and the TREAT Long COVID Act.
