About ADVOCACY DAY

Change begins with you! Advocacy Day is an opportunity for you and other passionate people to meet virtually with members of Congress urging them to support policies that improve the lives of individuals and families facing hereditary cancers. Our 2022 agenda will focus on legislative efforts that facilitate affordable access to care (genetic counseling, testing, screening, preventive interventions and treatments). Reducing barriers to these crucial services saves lives!

Your voice is the most powerful tool for raising awareness on Capitol Hill, and the more we join together to speak out, the greater our impact will be.

Advocates from around the U.S. are needed—hereditary cancer survivors, previvors, family members, healthcare professionals and researchers.

Don't worry if it is your first time participating in an advocacy event. Leading up to Advocacy Day, we will review our unified message and the legislation for which we will advocate. We will also teach you about advocating and how to share your story in a way that leaves a memorable impression on Congressional representatives. Your experiences and perspectives are important—we need your voice. 

Space is limited so don't delay! Register Now

What to Expect

You will join other advocates who have similar interests and concerns about the needs of people with or at risk of hereditary cancer. Collectively, our voices will be heard!

FORCE will schedule virtual meetings with lawmakers (typically 30 minutes each) on Thursday, June 16th, grouping you with a few other advocates from your state or region of the country. All participants will be asked to attend a brief Advocacy Day training. You will also receive meeting prep materials as well as more in-depth education regarding the issues and talking points for the appointments.
