Call-on Congress 2021
Join us and other advocates to virtually storm the Hill to fight for better access to screening and increased funding for research on June 14.
Call-on Congress 2021
Call-on Congress is Fight CRC’s signature advocacy event, held every year since 2007. Although it is historically hosted in person in Washington, D.C. each March, the pandemic changed everything. And if we do say ourselves, it made Call-on Congress even better!
By shifting to a virtual event in 2020, we were able to engage four times the number of participants we normally would…and that was with just one week’s notice of the country going into quarantine. For 2021, we’ve had time to plan and organize a virtual Call-on Congress like never before.
JUNE 14: Day of Action & Virtual Celebration
On June 14, join thousands of advocates to take part of our Day of Action. We’ll have plenty of ways for you to engage, from social media, email, phone calls, and local congressional meetings. Be sure you’re signed up as an advocate to receive email notifications with instructions!
Anyone can participate in our Day of Action on June 14! Those who’ve registered for Call-on Congress will get a few extras…
- The opportunity to attend virtual congressional meetings
- A curated celebration box sent right to your home
- An invitation to our Celebration on June 14 at 7pm (it’ll be a virtual party with tons of fun activities and ways to connect with other champions!)
Virtual Advocacy Training
Those who register for Call-on Congress will receive the opportunity to attend virtual advocacy trainings.
We’ll provide virtual trainings on sharing your story with members of Congress, Fight CRC’s policy priorities, how to talk to the media, how Congress works, state-level advocacy, and more! You’ll get everything you need to feel comfortable advocating in Washington, DC and in your local community.
Don’t worry, it’s not all business. We’ve thrown in some social events, too, and you’ll have a mentor along the way to answer all of your questions.
While the training sessions will be released on certain days, there’s no strict schedule for you to stick to. All we ask is that you complete the training by June 1 and participate in group discussions as much as possible to get the full experience.
