How to use this website:

Step 1: Welcome to Speak Now for Kids. Thank you for being the voice for children’s health care. We encourage you to use that voice and join us as a Speak Now for Kids advocate. Signing up takes just a few minutes, and: automatically creates a user profile for you; puts you on our map of champions; and keeps you in the loop on issues that affect kids’ health care. When you sign up you will receive a confirmation email with your username and temporary password (which you can change). Logging into Speak Now for Kids allows you to add your own story and access your profile. You can also access and participate in our interactive forum.

Step 2: Already signed up? Then tell your story. Add a video, photo, or a written story to your profile and share it with other advocates and your friends online via social media. Speak Now for Kids is a place where children's health care advocates from across the country can exchange stories and engage with each other on important child health issues. Your contributions to this effort are tremendously important. You can add up to three videos to your profile, three audio stories, 10 pictures and a written testimonial. Need some inspiration? Take a look at our stories page to see what other members of Speak Now for Kids have posted.

Step 3: Get active by learning the latest on child health issues and legislation and taking action by writing to Congress. We provide pre-written letters you can send as written, or customize it with your own story. Since kids can’t vote, we need to raise our voices on their behalf to our elected officials. Want to know the important health issues of the week? Check out our blog. Got a question for our community? Post it to our forum. Speak Now for Kids is your network – make the most of it, have fun in the process and accumulate “points” for being a champion for children’s health which are tracked under your user profile. Points are redeemable for Speak Now for Kids prizes.
