Washington, District of Columbia
Register Now

Register now for the most impactful event in the prostate cancer community!

There is no doubt that advocacy efforts touch the lives of the entire prostate cancer community. Perhaps you live in a state that passed legislation to remove costs from prostate cancer screenings. Or maybe you or a loved one has benefited from a treatment developed through one of the programs we support. 

Since our advocacy efforts began over twenty years ago, we have seen incredible success, including growing federal prostate cancer research funding by more than 144%.

But that does not happen without people like you who come to Washington, D.C., to tell their stories to their elected representatives. You are the ones who can drive changes that improve and save lives. 

Join fellow advocates from across the country in Washington, D.C. on February 23-25, 2025, to fight for policies that benefit prostate cancer patients and their families.

I am a husband, father, and grandfather, and I have advanced prostate cancer. There are treatments now that weren't available when I was diagnosed in 2009. These new treatments are prolonging and improving my quality of life. On Capitol Hill, ZERO advocates for increased funding for prostate cancer research, research which is keeping me alive. I am living proof that advocacy saves lives, and now I pay it forward by advocating at the Summit.

What to Expect

The 2025 ZERO Prostate Cancer Advocacy Summit will be held in person at the Hilton Washington D.C. Capitol Hill, a short distance from the U.S. Capitol and the offices of the legislators we’ll meet with to make prostate cancer a national priority. The Summit begins with the Bold For Blue Award Ceremony on Sunday, February 23. This celebratory event honors and recognizes those who have significantly impacted our community in the past year. 

The Summit continues bright and early Monday morning. You will receive all the training and practice you need to be an effective advocate throughout the day. There will also be opportunities to hear from experts about the latest developments in prostate cancer research and treatment. 

Everything culminates on Tuesday, February 25, when we all go to Capitol Hill to speak to our elected representatives face-to-face on how they can better support our community. 

Never advocated before? Every advocate starts somewhere, and there is no better place to start than at the ZERO Summit. You'll be surrounded by your fellow advocates who share your passion for making prostate cancer too big to ignore!

No-one should have to choose between a life-saving prostate cancer screening and a meal for their family. That is why I meet with my elected representatives at the ZERO Summit to ensure that high-risk populations, such as Black men, can get tested early for prostate cancer with the fewest barriers possible.
