Welcome from our President
Welcome to the 2020 ACS CAN Leadership Summit and Lobby Day (LS&LD) website! Although LS&LD will undoubtedly look and feel different than in years’ past, the core identity of this event is unchanged: an extraordinary opportunity to bring the cancer patient voice to Capitol Hill and urge Congress to make cancer a top priority.
Our goal this year, like every year, is to provide you with the resources you need to prepare for your successful lawmaker meetings. We know an impactful LS&LD will require patience and coordination – probably more so than in a traditional year – but I know the challenges will be met through a combination of resources on this website; multiple opportunities this summer for learning & practicing; and a lot of dedication and heart. I also hope we can create and foster that feeling of community among our incredible advocates; each of you brings unique knowledge, experience and passion to our fight that should be shared and celebrated!
While I cherish our time together in the nation’s capital each September, I am so looking forward to connecting with volunteers nationwide virtually in the coming weeks. Thank you for standing up, speaking out and “logging on” on behalf of all those impacted by cancer. They need us more than ever.
President, ACS CAN
