Let your voice be heard! Join Us in Washington DC!
Each year, VBCF provides training and transportation to about 100 activists across the state to attend National Lobby Day, hosted by the National Breast Cancer Coalition. National Lobby day is held in May of each year. Breast Cancer Advocates from around the country will go to Washington DC and talk with their legislators about public policy regarding breast cancer. The legislative priorities are set annually and typically focus on legislative priorities that include increasing funding for breast cancer research; providing access to high quality health care and clinical trials; and expanding the influence of breast cancer advocates in all aspects of the breast cancer policy decision-making process.
