Orientation Materials for Breast Cancer Action’s Community Leaders for Change

Welcome to Breast Cancer Action’s Community Leaders for Change program!

Breast Cancer Action is a national grassroots education and activist organization working to achieve health justice for all women at risk of and living with breast cancer.

We view breast cancer as a social justice issue and a public health crisis. Individual action alone, whether in terms of lifestyle or behavioral choices, is not sufficient to tackle the root causes of the breast cancer epidemic.  That’s why, as the watchdog of the breast cancer movement, we educate, organize and take action for systemic change.

We do this work in three key areas: 1) Breast Cancer Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment, 2) Root Causes of Breast Cancer and 3) Pink Ribbon Marketing and Culture.

Please read (or watch!) the following materials to learn more about what we do. Please contact our Campaigns Coordinator Alyssa Figueroa at afigueroa@bcaction.org with any questions.
