Congressional District Meetings

Home Congressional District Meetings

August Challenge 2016

This summer is your opportunity to take action as an advocate in your local community! Throughout August and into September, Congress will recess for summer and many U.S. senators and representatives will head home to meet with their constituents and hold town hall events so that they can hear from you about the issues you care about most.

These events are a great opportunity for the pancreatic cancer community to show their purple and tell members of Congress that we need to increase cancer research funding TODAY to reach our goal of doubling survival by 2020.

Below is a list of all the district meetings and town hall events (sorted by state) that our Advocacy Leaders have scheduled or are aware of to-date. If you are not sure who your members of Congress are, click here to search for your Senators and here to lookup your local Representative.

To join a meeting taking place in your area, please contact the meeting organizer listed below to let them know you would like to attend. They will provide you with everything you need to know to attend your local district meeting or town hall event.

If you are the Advocacy Leader for your area, please refer to this instruction sheet for setting up a district meeting and this instruction sheet for attending a town hall meeting, and let us know once you have the meeting scheduled so that we can add it to this list. Remember to check back frequently, as this list will be updated regularly!

If you have any questions, need more information or do not see an upcoming meeting in your area, please contact us at advocacy@pancan.org or 202-742-6699.
