Advocating for quality health and physical education programs for every child in America just got a whole lot easier!  The American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (AAHPERD), partnering with Soft Edge, is thrilled to offer new and enhanced advocacy tools to members and anyone committed to children’s health.

Take a look at AAHPERD’s new advocacy webpage - AAHPERD Take Action - view key issues AAHPERD is monitoring and find your elected officials
·         Issues - access all action alerts to ensure your voice is heard in Congress

·         Directory - find Congressional contact information and use the Guide to Congress to help navigate the advocacy process

·         Bills - read bill summaries on current legislation that AAHPERD is watching

·         Share - download and post web stickers on your website to encourage other to advocate

·         Elections - track current elections in your state

·         Media - easily contact your local media to share the importance of health and physical education in schools with your community

Take action today to guarantee that health and physical education will be addressed by Congress and become integral programs in schools across the country. Share this valuable advocacy link with your colleagues, friends and families.  Whether you are a physical education teacher, parent, principal, superintendent, school board member or concerned citizen, you have a role to play in helping our youth have quality health and physical education programs.
