Ob-gyns have an intimate relationship with the women for whom they care. But caring for them doesn't have to stop when you leave the exam room. Advocacy, through the legislative process, is both effective and far-reaching.
ACOG’s All-in for Advocacy campaign is working to utilize ACOG’s best advocates: YOU. By connecting ACOG members with resources and advocacy opportunities, All-in for Advocacy will mobilize ob-gyns across the country to advocate for women and the specialty both at the Federal level and in their state’s legislature.
Join the campaign, explore the resources below, support your patients beyond the exam room, and go ALL-IN FOR ADVOCACY!
It all starts here! If you haven’t already done so, you can enhance your advocacy efforts by taking a few minutes to complete your personal advocacy profile. Tell us who you know and what issues you care about, so we can be most effective in our targeted advocacy efforts.

What is advocacy; what does it mean for our practices, our patients, and our specialty? Advocacy is a coordinated combination of problem identification, solution development, strategies devised, and actions taken to create positive change. ACOG's advocacy includes federal and state legislative and political actions to create positive change for our specialty.
In ACOG's All-In for Advocacy Video, ACOG leaders share lessons they've learned on the importance of your involvement in the democratic process and how you can get involved and best advocate for our specialty.
