Colorectal Cancer Caucus
Build a group of relentless champions for the colorectal cancer community in Congress.
Why This is Important:
- In order to change federal policy, we need members of Congress to fight for us in Washington, DC.
- Caucuses can become quite influential, especially if they have a large number of members and high engagement.
- Every state and district in the U.S. is impacted by colorectal cancer. In order to change federal policy, we need members of Congress to fight for us, their constituents, in Washington, DC.
What We Are Doing:
Asking every member of Congress to join the Congressional Colorectal Cancer Caucus.
The Colorectal Cancer Caucus is a bipartisan group of Members of Congress dedicated to working collaboratively to increase access to screening, advance biomedical research to ensure more effective lines of treatment, and ultimately find a cure for colorectal cancer. The caucus helps to raise awareness about the challenges faced by the colorectal cancer community among policymakers and their staff as well as support policy solutions to improve the lives of all patients, survivors, and their loved ones.
