July 16 Stakeholder Meeting and Lobby Day in D.C.

HELP US REACH THE NATIONAL SCREENING GOAL OF 80% OF AMERICANS 50 & OLDER SCREENED BY 2018!

eightyby2018logoOn July 16, the American Cancer Society’s Cancer Action Network and Fight Colorectal Cancer are co-hosting a stakeholder meeting and lobby day to push forward with this goal. This is the first opportunity for key colorectal cancer organizations and supporters to join together and bring their staff, volunteers and members to Washington, D.C. to meet with Congress to advocate for federal policies that will help us achieve our goal of 80% by 2018.

Joined by Congressman Donald Payne, Jr. and other lawmakers dedicated to the mission, a morning meeting will focus on discussing the current barriers to colorectal cancer screening, ongoing advocacy efforts and how the cancer community can work with Congress to achieve our goal.

If you’re unable to attend the meeting, you can still join the action through social media!
