Once you have chosen what is important, call on your government to publish plans on how it will reach the Global Goals 2020 target: by 2020, we need to halve the number of people being killed on the world's roads.

We ask you to send letters, make noise and get those plans from your government on how they will reach their target. For your convenience you can find an advocacy guide and advocacy letters for you to get going.

There are some letters for supporters in the US to send to your state legislators! Feel free to include other road safety issue areas that can #SaveKidsLives, or use our messaging in your own letter! More country letters will be coming soon but for now, you can also adjust these to you own local settings. Click on the buttons below to download them.

Earned media, which means convincing a media outlet to cover your issue

Paid media, which entails paying for a media outlet to present your issue

Owned media, which requires that you create and disseminate content over your own website, blog or other channels you control

Social media, which includes using Facebook, twitter, YouTube and other interactive platforms to create attention and generate dialogue.
