“The ICC is about solving national cancer issues with representation from all Americans. It cannot be defined as either an entity composed of grassroots organizations or categorized as mainstream, but as an American organization whose members are the fabric of which this nation is comprised. It is more of a fine salad than a melting pot.” –

“There is still a disproportionate cancer incidence, morbidity, and mortality among minorities, persons of low socioeconomic status in the United States, its associated territories and our Tribal Nations. Health inequities and health disparities suffered by these communities have been documented through many published reports including the tobacco crisis in America.  There is still a critical need to develop knowledge and strategies to address this crisis with the leadership and full participation of the affected communities.  The Intercultural Cancer Council will continue to provide a multicultural forum to address, discuss and demonstrate the importance and promotion of the issues of cancer and chronic diseases that impact our communities.” –

“The Intercultural Cancer Council’s motto ‘Speaking with One Voice’ embodies the power of uniting a diverse and representative membership to raise issues, propose solutions and, most importantly, to effect change that benefits all regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status or geography. Finding leadership from the communities where cancer health disparities exist, the ICC is committed to returning to those leaders, their organizations and their communities, the skills, resources and programs that offer solutions to
our call to action.” –
