Click here to register!
We invite you to join us in Washington, D.C., to learn how to advocate for increased research for this devastating disease and to tell your members of Congress and their staff how important pancreatic cancer research funding is to you!
Questions? Inquiries may be directed to our Government Affairs & Advocacy Department at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-742-6699.
As part of the event, we will conduct training sessions on how to meet with your elected officials, so no previous experience with advocacy is necessary. The only requirements are that you are excited about educating your elected officials about pancreatic cancer, our organization, and the need for more federal funding for pancreatic cancer research. Additionally, each participant will have the chance to choose areas of interest through a variety of breakout sessions. During the registration process, participants will pick three breakout session preferences and will be assigned to two. For more information on the available breakout sessions, please click here.
We ask that you commit to a full day of training on Monday, June 16. Because of this commitment, you should plan to arrive in Washington, DC sometime on Sunday, June 15 (or earlier if you want to participate in the PurpleStride and/or PALS lecture), and expect to attend meetings on Capitol Hill until at least 5:00 pm on Tuesday, June 17.
We hope that as many of you as possible will join us as we carry our important message to Congress. Since Advocacy Day is a very popular event and space is limited, we encourage you to register as soon as possible. Advocacy Day registration will close on Friday, May 2, or when capacity is reached, whichever comes first.
If you are unable to join us for Advocacy Day, we encourage you to participate in our National Call-In.
