Time is running out for Congress to pass legislation that extends funding for CHIP, which expires on September 30, 2017. Urge your Representative and Senators to voice strong support for a clean 5-year extension of CHIP funding and to tell congressional leadership to hold a vote on funding extension before September 30.
KHSA is asking everyone to join with child-advocacy groups to create a Twitter storm on September 19 from 1:00 - 2:00 PM. For sample tweets, images (good for Twitter or Facebook), and Twitter handles for Kansas senators and representatives, check out this social media kit.
