Speak out for public health with APHA’s advocacy campaign

The PHACT campaign offers the tools you need to gain the attention of your members of Congress. Reaching out to your lawmakers is especially important with health care and funding for public health vulnerable to major changes and cuts that would be devastating to public health. There are many ways to influence the decisions of your members of Congress:

  • Meet with your members of Congress or their staff, or invite them to visit you.
  • Attend a public forum and ask a question.
  • Submit an op-ed to your local paper. For a template letter, email mediarelations@apha.org and for some inspiration, read published pieces by APHA members and Affiliates.
  • Use social media to engage with your members of Congress.
  • Send an email or call and use an APHA action alert as a phone script or email message.

Learn more about how to get involved by watching the 2017 PHACT campaign webinar.
