State Proclamation Project

Leukodystrophy Awareness Monthand Newborn Screening Awareness Month – is celebrated in September each year.

One way you can help increase awareness of Leukodystrophy is by requesting that your state officially declare September to be Leukodystrophy Awareness Month!

A proclamation is purely ceremonial, but it can be a great way to get the word Leukodystrophy in the minds of stakeholders in your state, get media coverage of your story, and spread awareness on social media!

And, you will usually receive a paper copy of the proclamation to keep:
