Home Blog New Brand, New Call-on Congress! New Brand, New Call-on Congress! January 15, 2020 • By Emily Piekut Advocacy Blog Call-on Congress, Fight Colorectal Cancer’s (Fight CRC) signature advocacy training and Hill day will be held March 15-17, 2020 in Washington, D.C. This year, the event is full of surprises! Keeping with the theme of our new brand, there will be plenty of ways for you to engage with us (from the event and from home!) as a relentless champion of hope in the fight against colorectal cancer. More Collaboration We hand-picked our speakers with you in mind. By featuring discussion-based panels rather than individual speakers, attendees will be more engaged and hear multiple points of view on all the issues, from patient education and research to advocacy and policy. Additionally, interactive breakout sessions will give you the opportunity to use YOUR voice to share what matters as someone who’s been affected by colorectal cancer, and how you plan to make a difference as a relentless champion of hope. View the full agenda here. Less of This… More of This… New Look Not sure about attending? Well, our new swag might just change your mind. Each attendee receives a free t-shirt and has first dibs on gear and exclusive discounts at the Call-on Congress on-site store. Some items are only available by pre-order, so be sure to get those orders placed by January 30! New Ways to Get Involved State-level advocacy is one of the biggest (dare we say, better?) additions to Call-on Congress 2020. The training you’ll receive will motivate you to put your newly acquired network and skills to use locally. We’ll wait to share the details at the event, but just know that your job as an advocate won’t stop after you leave D.C.! Some Things Never Change Not everything is changing. You can still expect to make new friends, visit with old ones, and make memories that will last for a lifetime. Be sure to join the Facebook group for Advocates to connect with other attendees before the event. We can’t wait to see you there!
