ABOUT BREAST CANCER ACTION
Breast Cancer Action is not your typical breast cancer organization. Our passionate, talented, tireless staff and our engaged grassroots membership are our strength. Since our founding in 1990, we have had an outsized impact because of the power of people coming together. We are currently hiring an accomplished Campaigns Coordinator to lead and run our national digital campaigns.
Breast Cancer Action's founders knew that their personal tragedy was part of a larger public health crisis. Our work to achieve health justice for all women living with and at risk of breast cancer has always been grounded in the fact that breast cancer is a social justice issue. Today, Breast Cancer Action is known as the watchdog for the breast cancer movement. We work for system change that addresses the root causes of the breast cancer epidemic.
Radical and compassionate, we never shy away from the hard truths. We tell it like it is and refuse to blame anyone for their breast cancer, because:
Breast Cancer Action is fiercely independent and refuses corporate funding from any company that profits from or contributes to breast cancer, which means we can do the work that other breast cancer organizations don't do.
We value diversity and each member of our team brings their own diverse lived experiences along with the depth of their professional expertise to inform and enrich our work together. We are an ambitious organization and successful team members bring big, bold ideas as well as a relentless determination to get the actual work done. Our work together is deeply collaborative and driven by our organizational values.
