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. Our grassroots army met on August 9-10 for our second District Days event, where we asked Congress to continue funding lifesaving research for kidney cancer patients.
NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!
You have missed this year’s event, but there are plenty of other opportunities to get involved, sign up to our newsletter and receive up to date information.
All patients, families, caregivers, friends, and medical professionals are 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 receive a meeting schedule, talking points, scripts you can use if you would like, and leave-behind documents.
