What is the AACR Cancer Action Alliance?

Launched in January 2012, the alliance leverages the strength of AACR members and interested nonmembers to build nationwide public and congressional support for cancer research and scientific progress.

Alliance members are kept regularly informed about the news and events that affect cancer research and are alerted to opportunities to contact Congress or participate in other forms of outreach. Alliance members receive action alerts, timely legislative updates and other resources to facilitate their efforts.

Why Join?

With many congressional leaders pushing for deep reductions in federal spending, it is imperative that everyone who cares about defeating cancer speak out now and urge lawmakers not to turn their backs on the incredible scientific opportunities that are before us.

Senators and representatives need to hear directly from residents in their district and/or state to understand what is at stake for their constituency, in terms of economics, health and competitiveness, if cancer research is not made a priority.

It is free and simple to join and your contact information will be used only to contact you about the AACR’s advocacy efforts and opportunities to take action.
