Advocate

Your voice is powerful. From your family and friends to federal policymakers, sharing your story and advocating for change can bring us closer to a world without colorectal cancer.

Fight Colorectal Cancer (Fight CRC) provides colorectal cancer patients, families, and advocates with the tools to effectively engage policymakers at the federal, state, and local levels to increase colorectal cancer prevention, ensure access to high-quality care for patients and their families, and develop new treatments and cures.

Take Action

Advocacy is about taking action. And it comes in many forms. From talking to your neighbor about colorectal cancer screening, to sharing your story on social media, to meeting with your representatives — every step is important!

State Advocacy

Fight CRC works at the state level to raise awareness about the importance of colorectal cancer screening and to implement policies that increase access.

Federal Policy

Fight CRC is on the ground in Washington, D.C., amplifying the voices of our advocates and keeping policymakers up to date on the latest developments in the colorectal cancer community. We work to build support for policies to expand colorectal cancer prevention efforts, improve access to high-quality care, and increase critical medical research funding.

Call-on Congress

Every year in March, Fight CRC advocates from across the country come to Washington, D.C. for Call-on Congress, a three-day event that culminates in a trip to Capitol Hill where advocates meet with Members of Congress and their legislative staff to share their stories and discuss the policy issues most important to the colorectal cancer community.
