Join the effort to prevent child death.

Contact Your U.S. Senator today asking them to pass S. 2746.

The U.S. Senators below can help make The Sudden Unexpected Death Data Enhancement and Awareness Act (S. 2746) law. But we need your help to show our support to pass this bill into law.

If you live in one of these states, please make all efforts to contact your U.S. Senators urging them to pass S. 2746. Please go to the U.S. Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions website and you will see the list of Senators and their homepage links to contact them directly. The message can be very simple:

“Please pass S. 2746 – The Sudden Unexpected Death Data Enhancement and Awareness Act. The bill will help collect data to help better understand the causes of stillbirth deaths, Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID) and Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC). The purpose of the legislation is to help prevent the future deaths of children and the tragedies these deaths cause to families across the U.S.

(INSERT SHORT PERSONAL STORY)”

We have a very short amount of time as the session is about to end. With your help, the bill has the potential of being voted and passed onto the full U.S. Senate. The bill has already passed the U.S. House of Representatives.

Here are the U.S. Senators that need to be contacted immediately.
