Our Champions

Our advocacy champions are making an impact by changing policy and keeping your voice at the center of policy discussions related to colorectal cancer. They are the individuals championing our causes alongside all colorectal cancer advocates.

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.

Co-Chairs:

Rep. Donald Payne, Jr.

(D-NJ)

Rep. Rodney Davis

(R-IL)

Grassroots Action Committee

The Grassroots Action Committee (GAC) is a group of all-star advocates dedicated to enhancing and growing Fight CRC’s advocacy community. They offer first-hand insights into our legislative priorities, engage and encourage advocates, and support our signature advocacy event, Call-on Congress. The GAC also provides guidance for advocates in their region on how to get involved, fostering relationships in all 50 states.
