What is Advocacy?

Advocacy is the process of organizing people impacted by a problem, making them aware of their own power, and collectively organizing to impact decision makers to make change. The decision makers in this case are federal, state, and local legislatures. Our advocacy efforts are led by American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN), an affiliate of ACS. Just like the ACS, the ACS CAN’s mission is to end suffering and death from cancer by rallying together to demand change from our elected officials.
