Mark your calendar for the Volunteer Day of Understanding on June 15

This will be the final 2021 Volunteer Impact Series session.

We hope you can join us for the final session of the Volunteer Impact Series. This series highlights how volunteers can make an impact on the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.

The Volunteer Day of Understanding on Tuesday, June 15, will be a moderated panel discussion with volunteer leaders to examine the organization’s role in addressing systemic racism and creating and sustaining an organizational culture that centers on diversity, equity, and inclusion. This will be the first-time volunteers will be able to participate in a Day of Understanding.

This session will run from 8-9:15 p.m. ET and panelists will be announced soon. We’ve also dedicated time during the virtual event for our panelists to answer your questions.

Volunteers must register to participate by Monday, June 14. If you registered prior to the first session on April 20 or the second session on May 11, you do not need to register again. A link to join the session will be emailed to you at the email address provided prior to the session.

You are encouraged to invite other dedicated volunteers to join this important discussion.

If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Oaks, senior volunteer engagement manager.


The Relay For Life movement is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraiser dedicated to helping communities attack cancer. From team members to volunteers, we all want to remember those we’ve lost, help those affected today, and take action against cancer. Through funds donated, time given, or awareness raised, our communities are teaming up to make a difference, whether we’re connecting virtually or sharing space. When we rally together in the fight against cancer through this fun and inspirational event, we can accomplish anything.
