    Casting Call Header-01This year we are hosting a one-day ambassador boot camp in Nashville, TN as part of our annual photo shoot for the One Million Strong campaign. We are looking for volunteers who want to get involved and represent the mission of Fight CRC.

    WHAT IS AN AMBASSADOR? This *new* program of Fight CRC rallies passionate people ready to make a difference. An ambassador’s role includes:

    • Raising awareness in local communities (We’ll give you cool tools!)
    • Speaking on our behalf locally and nationally (Be a face of Fight CRC!)
    • Participating in a focus group while at boot camp (Let us hear your ideas!)
    • Taking group photos that will be used on Fight CRC materials (Smile!)
    • Learning how to advocate for policy change on or off the Hill (Use your voice!)

    WHAT DO YOU RECEIVE? Well, for starters…

    • A cool new t-shirt
    • Fight CRC swag bag
    • New friends – and not just on Facebook
    • Bragging rights – you might see your picture on Fight CRC materials!
    • A chance to be one of the 5 featured stories in the national awareness campaign’s photos & videos

    THIS IS IMPORTANT:  Participation is free. We are recruiting a group of 30 people. Attendance at the Aug. 23 boot camp in Nashville from 1-9 p.m. is required if you’re selected. Unfortunately, scholarships for travel and accommodations are not available.
