Speak Now for Kids Campaign

Speak Now for Kids is an online advocacy network designed to help raise awareness of the unique challenges children and families face in our changing health care system. We encourage child health champions (people like you) to learn about issues affecting kids' health, submit personal stories, read and share stories as well as information, and take action in support of public policies that benefit kids and families. 


Speak Now for Kids provides advocates for children's health with opportunities to learn about issues impacting children's health care, to share their personal stories of why children's health care is important to them (just like the Doderer family, seen in the video above), to interact with others who share their interests in kids' health, and to take action by writing their members of Congress on legislative issues.

Partner hospitals and supporting organizations are encouraged to utilize the Speak Now for Kids toolkit below, which includes customizable outreach materials.


The #MyComplexNumber social media campaign can help raise public awareness about health care for children with complex medical conditions.
