Can't Make it to Lobby Day? Participate from Home and Help Spread NBCC's Message

NBCC's Annual Lobby Day will be held on Tuesday, April 30. Nearly 200 advocates will storm Capitol Hill to meet with Senate and House staff to advance NBCC's 2019 legislative and public policy agenda. Advocates representing nearly every state will spend an entire day on Capitol Hill conducting and participating in hundreds of meetings.

If you are not able to join us for Lobby Day, you can participate from home. Follow NBCC on social media and retweet or share our posts on Twitter and Facebook. The 2019 Lobby Day social media guide provides sample text and posts that you can use to be active from home.

You can also, continue outreach to your Representatives from home. Ask them to cosponsor the Metastatic Breast Cancer Access to Care Act, HR 2178. 24 Representatives have cosponsored the bill to date. Here is the list of Representatives who cosponsored last year's bill who have not yet signed on to cosponsor this year. 

Please have your Representatives contact Deena Tauster in Representative King’s office at deena.tauster@mail.house.gov or (202) 225-7896 or Elizabeth Brown in Representative Castor's office at elizabeth.brown@mail.house.gov or (202) 225-3376 to cosponsor this legislation. Also, please let NBCC know if your Representative has agreed to sign on so we can keep a running record.
