The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) serves as a voice for children, families and pediatricians at all levels of government. Speak up for your patients, children in your state and across the country by becoming involved in advocacy at the AAP.

Election Day 2020 is Tuesday, November 3. The AAP is leading a robust Get Out the Vote campaign focused on the connection between health equity and voting. Everyone deserves the opportunity to live up to their full health potential. Voting is one of the main ways we can influence the public policies that address health inequities in our communities. This election, we encourage pediatricians and those who care about children to vote like children's futures depend on it.
Please visit AAP.org/VoteKids for a suite of AAP resources, including information on key child health issues and their ties to health equity, voter registration resources, sample social media messages and graphics and other tools to help pediatricians share the importance of voting.
Thank you for your interest in advocating on behalf of children!
