Become a More Effective Advocate

Would you like to see better things happening for children, youth and families?  Are you interested in being a part of the change?

The people making the decisions need to hear from people who know what you know and have experienced what you’ve experienced – yourself, with your children, with your family, with your neighborhood.  You know what could be done differently to make things better.
We can be a part of the change.  In fact, we already have most of the tools that we need to influence policy-making and policymakers.  We all influence people every day – our children, parents, friends, neighbors, teachers, spouses, and many others.  This is advocacy.  We can use those same skills to influence the policymakers who can make the big changes that we want.  That is policy advocacy.
