Since our early days, Susan G. Komen® has worked to mobilize our communities to take action. Together, we ensure the voice and needs of the breast cancer patient, survivor and the people who love them are heard by lawmakers and government regulators across the United States.
Komen works to educate people about public policy issues, so they are empowered to become forceful advocates for themselves and their neighbors, and then unites their collective voices for maximum impact.
Sound government action is critical for making the broad, systemic and lasting changes we need to save lives and end breast cancer forever. That means that Komen – as a patient advocacy organization with first-hand knowledge of how breast cancer touches people and communities – must advocate at all levels of government. We cannot do it alone; Real change requires a chorus of voices!
The Susan G. Komen® Center for Public Policy, will focus on work to:
• Empower people and policymakers with knowledge,
• Connect advocates together, and
• Mobilize everyone to Act for lasting change.
The Center for Public Policy is not a separate organization, but rather a new unifying identity for the critical work we are doing to take action through public policy in the fight against breast cancer. The new identity includes an inspiring new tagline – Powered by YOU. This tagline speaks to the essence of our advocacy work. Change is only possible through each of you.
