photo (1)

12.11.13 Update:  THANK YOU for encouraging co-signers! We hit our goal and had 102 co-signers as of Dec. 4. See an updated list below for who signed on.

Please continue your eAdvocacy and make sure to sign up for Call-on Congress! If your state isn’t in the process of becoming a Blue Star State yet, get started today!

Rep. Donald Payne, Jr. is circulating a Dear Colleague letter asking for signatures from fellow representatives. A letter addressed to President Obama asks him to issue a presidential proclamation designating March 2014 as National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.

(President Clinton first issued the national proclamation and Bush followed suit. We’re hoping we can get President Obama on board for 2014, especially since the Affordable Care Act promotes no-cost screenings for colorectal cancer!)

Rep. Payne would like to close the letter on December 4, 2013. In less than 24 hours, 55 members of Congress agreed to sign the letter. The goal is 100 signatures.

NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP.
