Advocacy Resources

Resources to Empower Your Advocacy

We want to empower you to be an effective advocate in your local community, your state, and at the federal level. Below, you will find important documents about our advocacy work, such as relevant legislation, regulations, public comments, and educational information on prostate cancer. ZERO will update these documents regularly to serve as a library of relevant content to support your advocacy efforts.

ZERO has prevented a cut to the Prostate Cancer Research Program (PCRP) in five out of the last seven years. Additionally, for the last eleven years, Congress has appropriated $80 million to the PCRP. However, in the FY2017 appropriations bill, Congress increased the PCRP’s funding to $90 million. We are pleased that through the efforts of ZERO Champions and the broader prostate cancer community, Congress is now funding the PCRP at its FY2001 level of $100 million. We urge Congress to reach new heights in the fight against prostate cancer by increasing the current funding level in the FY2020 appropriations process by $10M to $110M.
