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 for our second District Days event, where we ask Congress to continue funding lifesaving research for kidney cancer patients.
No previous advocacy 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 on our registration page, along with 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
