Call-on Congress 2022

You can imagine a world without colorectal cancer. Or you can fight for one.

SAVE THE DATES: March 22-23, 2022

THIS IS YOUR WAKE-UP CALL!

In just 8 years, colorectal cancer is estimated to become the leading cause of cancer-related deaths for people under age 50.

We demand that policymakers act. We can’t afford to wait, lives are at stake today. What once was enough, no longer is. We need to fight for more.

At Call-on Congress, We Fight for More.

Call-on Congress is Fight Colorectal Cancer's (Fight CRC) signature advocacy event where we bring advocates from across the country to Washington, D.C., (both virtually and in-person) to share their stories with Members of Congress and impact meaningful policy change.

2022 is going to be BIGGER and better than ever! In addition to meeting with members of Congress to share our stories and urge them to do MORE to change the statistics around colorectal cancer, Fight CRC will be hosting the first-ever colorectal cancer awareness installation on the National Mall. Part celebration of relentless champions of hope and part attention-grabbing, awareness-raising visual, the installation will amplify and underscore the need for more from our elected officials.

It's Time to Rally.

It's Time to Make Some Noise.

COVID-19 Policy

Consistent with CDC guidelines, Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC) encourages all participants to practice hand hygiene, social distancing, and wear face coverings to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19 at all Fight CRC events. Proof of vaccination is required to attend. Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, Fight CRC has put in place preventive measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, Fight CRC cannot guarantee that its participants, volunteers, partners, and others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19.
