At Breast Cancer Action’s October event Radical Disruption & Compassionate Resistance, we hosted a panel of four expert breast cancer activists who spoke to the power of our 2021 Think Before You Pink® campaign Stop Banking on Breast Cancer. The panel featured BCAction Program Manager Jayla Burton, BCAction Executive Director Krystal Redman, nationally-known biologist, author, and former cancer patient Dr. Sandra Steingraber, and BCAction Board Member and American Indian Cancer Foundation Health Equity Manager CoCo Villaluz. Together, the panelists elucidated never-before-explored connections between breast cancer, fossil fuels, financial institutions, and environmental racism that brought the campaign to life. They demonstrated why we must take action to stop Susan G. Komen’s Pink Ribbon Banking Program – and the cancer-causing fossil industry overall. The panelists went beyond the analytical and they touched on the personal stories and challenges that have driven their commitment to this work, which brought home the importance of this bold campaign.
