Your Representative and Senators will be working in their district offices during the upcoming August Congressional Recess (August 6-31) and we need you to reach out to them while they’re home. House and Senate leaders have requested far less than the amount needed to advance crucial cancer research.
WE NEED YOU!! Tell Congress to keep their promise and properly fund cancer research.
Here are some ideas on how to get the message out about proposed funding levels for cancer research to your Representative and Senators while they are home in the district.
1. Option 1: CALL your Representatives and Senators at their district office today and tell them that the current funding level for the NIH, which includes the NCI, won’t work and needs to be fixed. Click here for their phone numbers
2. Option 2: Attend a public meeting or event where your Representative and Senators may be at.
3. Option 3: Drop by their district office. You may not be able to sit down with your Member of Congress, but you should be able to at least speak with a staff member.
4. Option 4: If time is short, send an E-MAIL to your Representative and Senators today.
