Blue Star States
About Blue Star States
Blue Star States is a campaign working to get March recognized as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month in EVERY state.
Each year, advocates must submit requests to state governors. Each state has its own unique process. (The same is true for the national proclamation from the president – which we’ve received three years in a row!)
Blue Star States kicked off in 2013. Each year we engage advocates across the US. In March 2017, nearly 300 advocates participated and 47 states recognized March as Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month!
Ready to help in 2018?
We need all hands on deck – it’s helpful when multiple advocates in a state request a proclamation! Sign up as an advocate so we can let you know when we launch the 2018 campaign.Register as an Advocate
Each state has its own unique process for submitting proclamation requests. Don’t worry though – we did the research for you.
We’ll help every step of the way.
Next year’s Blue Star States will kick off in fall 2017. Register as an advocate so we can send you instructions for participating once the campaign launches!Register as an Advocate
We love celebrating with you! Advocates submit proclamation pictures and #strongarmselfies to show us their success.
At Fight CRC, we hang our hats on changing policy with the help of advocates like you.
Advocacy isn’t scary — it’s simply sharing your story with members of Congress to raise awareness of issues that affect colorectal cancer.
Just tell your story — we’ll provide the rest!
