Click to Call Congressional Leadership Right Now! 

Thanks to your efforts, this past year NBCC made critical advocacy gains –including vital action in these last critical weeks of the 117th Congress. NBCC advocates made their voices heard on Capitol Hill. They sent hundreds of messages to Congress, tied up phone lines, and met with champions of our Metastatic Breast Cancer Access to Care Act to urge its passage this year. Thank you for your immeasurable impact on our work. With time running out, now we need to flood Speaker Pelosi’s and Leader Hoyer’s phone lines and urge them to bring our bill to a vote! Our message is clear: Our legislation has overwhelming bipartisan support and would immediately provide access to care to people living with metastatic breast cancer. We cannot afford to wait.  We must make certain we deliver the right message, so we are providing a script for your use.

We can help you make calls:

  1.  First, go to our action center, and enter your address and click “Take Action”
  1. Second, click on phone icon, then enter your information and click “Call me”

The system will call you on your phone and connect you to the Leadership offices. Follow the prompts and use the script provided to speak to a representative or leave a message.

Plan to Meet Your New and Returning Members of Congress
The new year will bring many opportunities for NBCC advocates to meet their new and returning members of Congress to educate and remind them of NBCC’s public policy priorities. Find out whether your member will hold in person events with constituents. The best way to do that is to follow them on Twitter or Facebook. If you plan to attend an event, let NBCC staff know by emailing our new Grassroots Engagement Director Maggie Bush (mbush@stopbreastcancer.org), and she can provide you with talking points and necessary information. Stay tuned for new advocacy opportunities as the new Congress begins work in January!
