Advocacy refers to efforts to influence the introduction, enactment, or modification of legislation. The most common means of legislative advocacy is direct lobbying on behalf of the bladder cancer community. This may entail contacting your legislator, sharing your views on an issue, and asking him or her to vote a specific way on a bill.
From time-to-time, BCAN may ask you to raise your voice on behalf of bladder cancer patients and their families. We will send alerts through our newsletters and social media as new issues emerge that need the support and voice of the bladder cancer community.
