Policy and advocacy

Advocacy is vital to March of Dimes to advance our mission through public policies, programs, and funding.

The U.S. remains among the most dangerous developed nations for childbirth, especially for moms and babies of color. Join us in urging our lawmakers to prioritize #BlanketChange policies for every family.
Become an advocate and use your voice to make change at the federal, state and local level to improve the health of all moms and babies. We’re championing health equity, reducing prematurity, and making measurable strides to prevent maternal mortality.
