The toolkit and videos below are designed to help advocates of all experience levels speak up for the oral health and overall health of all Kansans. Use these resources for everything from finding your legislators to the Kansas legislative timeline.

Why Advocacy?
From the guidelines resulting in the cleanliness of our water to the distribution of funding in our community, policies effect almost every aspect of our daily lives. If we aren´t taking action to educate our policy makers, these decisions and policies will be made for us. It is up to us to stand up and have a say. 

Who Should Use These Tools?
Any individual and/or organizations interested in advocating for policy change in Kansas.
