ACS CAN: Ask Chris Hansen – Molly from Wisconsin: How Can I Help?


okay this question comes from molly in milwaukee
wisconsin and again a lot of other people’s a lot of
other people asked this question and i have to say i love this question the question is how can i help? and molly i want to know you really can help
and you can help in the whole variety of ways first of all we have community action teams
and just about every congressional district across the country you can get involved in one of those community
action teams and you can find those teams by going to our website www.acscan.org uh… and there are a whole lot of other things
you can do is well you’ll find information on our website about how to we have a celebrate with action because ACS CAN is almost ten years old and all of that celebration is going to go on in a way that it helps people
fight cancer so there’s a lot that you can do there also we have action alerts will go on hand and
than if you follow the instructions on those action alerts uh… you can help us a lot because we have the things that we send the people
have a lot of research behind that we have people at the federal government level we
have people in the states we know exactly what’s going on we know what kinds of actions
need to be taken and when they need to be taken we know what kind of message needs to be delivered
to get people to do that we’re seeing enormous impact from the actions
of people are are taking on the grass roots lobbying that they do i have to say that i i came to washington
d_c_ in nineteen seventy four and government relations was very much of
an inside game people didn’t engage in a lot of grassroots and the power of having people like you contact members of congress is huge their extremely receptive to that because
you are the voters and if they think that the people who are or going to be voting or giving them messages
about what they need to be doing or what they shouldn’t be doing they’re extremely responsive and we see people change dramatically when when people contact them as we ask them
to so you can help us a lot so go to www.acscan.org take a look at the uh… take a look at the
information that’s on there and how you can participate and participate and bless you for doing
that and thank you very much molly for asking
the question
