The NASPCC is currently embarking on major advocacy training to help the state organizations develop a unified national platform, and to assist states in understanding their own state legislative issues and potential advocacy.

NASPCC is an all-volunteer organization which is one of the strongest voices in prostate cancer on a national level. State Prostate Cancer Coalitions are involved in NASPCC as "Participating States" and share best practices. The state representatives come together once a year to network and participate in educational symposia, which results in extensive take-home messages for each representative to bring back to his or her state organization. NASPCC is also a member of the national Prostate Cancer Roundtable. We help states to develop their own prostate cancer organizations and mentor the development of each. We are also starting major advocacy training sessions to help the state organizations with legislative issues and advocacy within their states,
