ADVOCACY

Advocating for legislative action that will benefit our students, promote healthy and active lifestyles, and promote health and physical education is a valuable tool for us to use.  Let our voices be heard!

When it comes to advocacy, numbers are important.  The greater the number of contacts by constituents, the more likely the outcome will be in our favor.  How much noise will you make to inspire healthy and active Alaskans?

Keep up to date with legislative action that impacts our profession.  Use this page to easily send messages to your state senators, state representatives, national senators, and national congressman.
