06 Jul Your Voice Matters! Triage Cancer Has New Cancer Advocacy Resources
Celebrating our country's founding shouldn’t be a one-day event! In the United States we have the benefit that we get a say in who our elected officials are, and can use our voice to engage in advocacy efforts around the causes that we care about.
This year has already seen legislation responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, groundbreaking Supreme Court decisions, and a quick-moving legislative landscape. Engaging in policy and legislative advocacy is more important than ever. Learn more about the whole Spectrum of Advocacy opportunities.
Now is a great opportunity to “apply pressure and influence on the people and institutions that have the power to give you what you want.”
To celebrate the Fourth of July, we are excited to announce the launch of our new Advocacy Resources!
Our Advocacy Resources provide information and tools to help individuals diagnosed with cancer, caregivers, health care professionals, and other members of the cancer community to become empowered advocates. We have revamped our Advocacy Resources to include:
- New State and Federal Legislative Tracking Charts. These charts share information about policy and legislative issues that may impact the cancer community at both the federal and state levels. We also identify what is happening with those issues and where there are advocacy opportunities for you to get involved, use your voice, and share your story!
- Upcoming and Recorded Webinars. Webinars, like our Webinar to Legislative Advocacy, provide insider's tips for engaging in legislative advocacy to benefit the cancer community.
- Quick Guides to Types of Advocacy. For example, our Quick Guide to Legislative Advocacy shares an overview of how to get involved in legislative advocacy efforts in the cancer community. See all the Advocacy Guides here.
- Charts of State Laws. With detailed state-by-state information, these charts document laws related to employment, disability insurance, health insurance, COVID-19, accessing medical records, estate planning, genetic information, and much more. Where you live matters. You can see where there are gaps in the law and where there are opportunities to engage in advocacy efforts in your state.
- Ongoing blog posts. Triage Cancer shares breaking news related to policy and legislative issues that may impact the cancer community on our blog. Check out our blog post on new federal and state laws and programs that may impact you. Stay tuned . . .
Keeping up with our nation’s rapidly-changing policy landscape while navigating a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. Triage Cancer is here to help you use your voice. Visit our new Advocacy Page here.
What better way to honor our nation’s founding than to become an empowered cancer community advocate? Join us!
