CAC2 Webinar–Pediatric Cancer Advocacy – From Your Own Backyard

Many think of advocacy as traveling to Washington DC and speaking to their Senators and members of Congress, convincing them to pass legislation like the STAR Act. While this is an essential part of advocacy, there are many things that you can do within your state that do not involve travel or engaging politicians.

Ann Ramer presented opportunities for connecting with your local Childhood Cancer Community and highlighted the available tools on the CAC2 member page to support your effort.
