If you’ve ever tried to tell someone about D.C., it would be an injustice to show a single picture of the reflecting pool or a selfie from the White House. They all honor and remember those who’ve sacrificed and served with strength to better our nation – and the world. One single monument doesn’t make D.C. great – it’s all of them in one place that makes it one of the most inspirational and impactful cities on Earth.
It’s fitting that this city hosts our annual Call-on Congress – a three-day advocacy conference that empowers advocates to use their stories to change policies.
This year, on our 10th anniversary, we focused on the collective voice for change.
Just like the monuments, when we as advocates concentrate all of our single stories into one empowered, passionate, collective voice – we truly make change. We raise awareness. We get people screened. We change policy. We generate support for research dollars. And we get closer and closer to finding a cure.
That’s exactly what we experienced at our 10th annual Call-on Congress in D.C. and why it’s a year we’ll never forget.
Here were a few of our favorite moments from this year:
