Pancreactic Cancer Advocacy Day 2011

National Call-In 2011

We need YOU to Call Congress on Tuesday, June 14th
Registration for the Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day 2011 is now closed, but your voice can still be heard on Capitol Hill.

If you are not able to join us for the Fifth Annual Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day, please consider participating in the annual National Call-In on Tuesday, June 14th. You will be asked to make three brief, yet very important calls that day.

What is the National Call-In?
The National Call-in is an opportunity for all Pancreatic Cancer Action Network supporters across the country to join together with one voice to tell Congress that while you can't attend Advocacy Day in person, you believe that the time has come for Congress to take action and make pancreatic cancer research a national priority!

How does it work?
On Monday, June 13th, 2011, you will receive an email with instructions on how to place the calls to your two U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative. The email will include their office phone numbers, and what we'd like for you to say. The calls should take less than 5 minutes of your time, but will significantly impact our efforts to make the pancreatic cancer community heard. To ensure you receive the email with these instructions, sign up here to become an e-Advocate. Information about the National Call-In will also be available at www.pancan.org on June 14.

Mark your calendar today!
More than 2,000 phone calls were placed to Congress during the 2010 National Call-In. These calls were a tremendous help in augmenting the in-person meetings with elected officials and their staff on Advocacy Day. Please mark your calendar now for the 2011 National Call-In on June 14th and ask your friends and family to do the same. With your help, we can double the amount of calls that are placed to members of Congress during this year's Advocacy Day and make sure that legislators hear our message loud and clear: Pancreatic Cancer: Know It. Fight It. End It!
