Chapter's Current Advocacy Efforts

The Maine AAP has an active Advocacy Committee which members are welcome to join. If you are interested, please contact Dee Kerry, Executive Director.

For federal advocacy visit and sign-in with your AAP ID and password and you will find your Senators listed and links to easily send emails and faxes on important pediatric issues!

For state advocacy, visit the Maine Legislature’s website where you can look-up your elected officials and get their contact information.

For advocacy regarding the intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) community, Community Connect Maine website has easy ways to initiate building relationships with local legislators and finding I/DD resources.

We rely on chapter members to get involved by providing written and verbal testimony on current legislation, and leading efforts on specific initiatives such as increasing awareness around gun safety, promoting vaccinations, and implementing new child health policies and recommendations from the National AAP.
