ACS CAN Washington Virtual Cancer Action Day

It’s a new year and a new opportunity to fight cancer.

In 2021, we’re continuing to make our cancer-fighting voices heard in Washington State, even if we have to do it virtually! Register for our 2021 Virtual Cancer Action Day event on Feb 1, 2021. (link to follow)

Join me and hundreds of volunteers from across our state in the fight for legislative solutions to prevent and treat cancer and protect cancer patients and their families.  Our efforts to protect critical cancer research funding, fight against cuts to critical treatment programs and prohibit flavors used by big tobacco to hook new users. This will contribute to reducing health disparities impacting at-risk and under-served communities.

By meeting with your lawmakers, you will help protect the lives of thousands of families across our state. Even though we’re going virtual for 2021, we’ll have an impactful day/week of action, including issue briefings, social media activities, and time to ask your lawmakers to stand up for cancer patients.

Never participated in a virtual 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.
