Join ACS CAN Montana on Thursday, March 23rd and Friday, March 24th.

Our 2023 Montana Celebration on the Hill is an opportunity to raise the profile of ACS CAN and further our state legislative priorities, while asking your Montana lawmakers to stand up for cancer patients. ACS CAN is the nation's leading advocacy organization that is working every day to encourage elected officials and candidates to make cancer a top national priority. As the nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society, ACS CAN supports evidence-based solutions designed to eliminate cancer as a major health problem.

Join volunteers from across our state to fight for lifesaving laws that will prevent cancer and protect survivors and their families. It’s important now more than ever to urge our lawmakers to protect funding for successful tobacco prevention programs that have been proven to prevent kids from smoking and help adults quit. We also need to advocate for the importance of comprehensive policies that protect our children from the dangers of e-cigarettes. In Montana, 30% of high school students currently use e-cigarettes. As the tobacco industry is evolving, your advocacy has never been more critical.

By meeting with your lawmakers, you will help improve the lives of thousands of families across our state. We’ll have an impactful day of action, including issue briefings, social media activities, and time to ask your lawmakers to stand up for cancer patients.

Never participated in a meeting with your lawmaker? Don’t worry! We will provide you with training and all the tools to be successful. All you need is passion to make an impact in the fight against cancer.

Don’t miss your opportunity to make a difference in the fight against cancer. Register today!

After registration, you will receive more information about event details, travel options, and our agenda. If you have any questions, please email Montana Grassroots Manager [email protected]
