Advocacy Action Center

During the month of August, Members of Congress will be in their home districts and states meeting with their constituents to find out what the people they represent really care about. This is our opportunity to deliver the following messages to Congress:

  • Federal funding for cancer research must NOT be cut.
  • Join the Congressional Caucus on the Deadliest Cancers.

Here are three options for taking action this August:

Join a District Meeting

Advocacy leaders across the country are setting up local meetings with elected officials throughout the month of August. Please click on the button below for a list of all the district meetings that have been scheduled. Don’t see a meeting scheduled with one of your senators or your representative? Scroll down to see if they are holding a Town Hall meeting.



Attend a Town Hall

August is the most common time for federal legislators to host Town Hall meetings, or public forums. This is a great opportunity for our supporters to meet their elected officials in person and ask them what they are doing to address pancreatic cancer. Please click on the button below for a list of all the Town Hall meetings that we currently know about.
