ECAA aims to influence public-policy and resource allocation decisions within the United States, Canada and abroad. Advocacy efforts may include many activities that a person or organization undertakes including media campaigns, public speaking, commissioning and publishing research or poll or the ‘filing of friend of the court briefs’. Lobbying state and federal legislators is a form of advocacy where a direct approach is made to legislators on an issue which plays a significant role in modern politics.

House Resolution 1343: The board of the ECAA has fostered national support and in 2010 Congressman Bill Posey brought forth legislation in the United States House of Representatives to name April “Esophageal Cancer Awareness” month. Since 2010, ECAA and other organizations have championed the cause of EC Awareness across different levels of government.
