About the Event
American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), the advocacy affiliate of the American Cancer Society will host their annual policy forum, a premier event that brings together leaders from the business, education, government, and research communities on Wednesday, October 12th from 11:30-1:00pm at the Beaverton City Library, Main Auditorium.
This event will mark the official launch of the Oregon Cancer Caucus. We will hear directly from legislators who successfully legislated against cancer during the time of COVID-19. Speakers will include Washington County Commissioner Nafisa Fai, who introduced the amendment to end the sale of all flavored tobacco products, and State Representative Dacia Grayber, who championed the expansion of presumed cancer coverage for firefighters.
The Beaverton City Library holds a maximum of 150 people, so space will be limited. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
If you are unable to attend please consider donating here to support our lifesaving work.
Thank you for the generous support from the following event sponsors:
