Advocacy in support of school health and physical education is vital to the future of the profession as well as to the millions of school age children across the country.

Please join us for the 2016 SPEAK Out! Day, SHAPE America's annual member lobby event in Washington, DC. Represent your state, meet with your members of Congress and network with fellow SHAPE America members in order to "speak out" in support of school health and physical education.
