2021 District Days
In 2016, Congress allocated $0 in funding dedicated to kidney cancer research. Through the power of advocacy, we have raised that number to $135 million in five years. We need YOU to keep this funding in place. Please plan to join our grassroots army on August 9-10 for our second District Days event, where we ask Congress to continue funding lifesaving research for kidney cancer patients.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
All patients, families, caregivers, friends, and medical professionals welcome. Advocates meet virtually with their representatives and Congressional staff in their home districts to ask for research funding.
We provide training with Advocacy 101, a detailed guide to help you know what to expect and how to talk to your representatives about kidney cancer research funding. You will receive a meeting schedule, talking points, scripts you can use if you would like, and leave-behind documents.
The full agenda is listed below. Please see the additional information regarding training sessions. If you have any questions, please reach out! We welcome anyone with a passion for accelerating cures for kidney cancer. Contact our Legislative Patient Advocacy Lead, Debra Beyhan, at [email protected].

WE NEED YOU
This money isn’t a given. We’ve had to fight for it, year after year. We provide our advocates with training and a toolkit so that you can share your story with Congressional representatives in small meetings. You’ll help them understand the impact of kidney cancer on people’s lives and the urgent need for a cure. Join us and make your voice heard!
