Each year, OCRA brings together survivors, caregivers and supporters from across the country to meet virtually with legislators, and advocate for increased federal funding for ovarian cancer research and education.
Our elected officials need to hear from us, to ensure that ovarian cancer research and education programs remain a congressional priority. We’re counting on our strong community of patients, survivors, caregivers and supporters, to join us in bringing our shared message to the highest levels of government — all without leaving home. Your voice makes a difference! No advocacy experience is required to participate in Advocacy Day.
OCRA’s Spring Advocacy Day is March 15, 2023
Spring Advocacy Day will be conducted virtually, allowing advocates to participate from the comfort of your own homes. Mandatory training will be conducted via Zoom on Thursday, March 9th, from approximately 12pm – 4pm ET. Meetings with legislators and staff will take place throughout the day on March 15th. Participants can expect to have up to 3 meetings with legislators, each lasting from 30-60 minutes.
