Advocacy Action Center

Welcome to the 2014 Three-Week Challenge!

This June, advocates from around the country are taking action each week to generate support in Congress for pancreatic cancer research. You can act on each week’s challenge from home in less than 10 minutes. This year, the Three-Week Challenge begins on June 2 and culminates with the National Call-In on June 17. See below for this week’s challenge.

Week 3 Challenge (June 17)

 
Your challenge this week is to participate in the 2014 National Call-In. Join thousands of our supporters on Tuesday, June 17, and tell your lawmakers to stop cuts to cancer research funding! The National Call-In takes place on the same day as Advocacy Day, when hundreds of our volunteers from around the country will be in Washington, D.C., meeting with their elected officials in person. Click on the button below for instructions on how to make three quick phone calls to your senators and representative.

 
After you complete your phone calls, be sure to fill out the feedback form at the bottom of the page to be entered into our drawing for your choice of a two-night hotel stay during Advocacy Day 2015 or a $100 Shop Purple gift certificate. Also, to be successful, we need as many people as possible to participate in this effort, so please encourage others to take action by sending them an email or posting on Facebook .


Week 2 Challenge (June 9 – 15)

 
Your challenge this week is to visit our Advocacy Day social media page and complete at least one of the actions on that page in order to help us gain the attention of Congress via Facebook and/or Twitter. Click on the button below to complete the challenge.

 
Once you’ve sent your message, expand your impact by helping us recruit new advocates. Simply forward your friends and family our advocacy sign-up form. Get three new advocates to sign up, and we will send you a “Stomp on Pancreatic Cancer” t-shirt!


 

Week 1 Challenge (June 2 – 8)

 
Your challenge this week is to send an email to your three members of Congress asking them to prevent further cuts to funding for the National Cancer Institute and to make sure pancreatic cancer remains eligible to receive research funding through the Department of Defense. Click on the button below to complete the challenge.
