2024 Oregon Cancer Action Day

Oregon State Capitol
900 Court St NE
Salem, OR 97301

In 2024, we’re continuing to make our cancer-fighting voices heard in Oregon.

Join us Monday, March 4th!


Join our team and volunteers from across Oregon in the fight for legislative solutions to reduce the burden of cancer in our community. This year, we are prioritizing the issues lawmakers skipped in 2024: flavored tobacco, and biomarker testing. We will meet with our lawmakers to insist that the next time they step into the Capitol, they must prioritize ending the sale of flavored tobacco products and pass comprehensive biomarker testing legislation.

You can learn more about our effort to end the sale of flavored tobacco at

You can learn more about biomarker testing and why it’s so important in the fight against cancer at our webpage here.

These two policies together will significantly reduce the burden of cancer in Oregon. By meeting with your lawmakers now, you will help ensure that our issues are a familiar priority in the 2025 long legislative session.


Never participated in a meeting with your lawmaker? Don’t worry! We will provide you with training and everything you will need to be successful.

All you need is passion to make an impact in the fight against cancer.
