Children’s Advocacy Day at the Capitol

Join us for the 13th Annual Children’s Advocacy Day at the Capitol!

Nearly 1,000 youth and adults attended Children’s Advocacy Day in 2016, and we need you to help pack the rotunda and ask elected officials to prioritize kids in the 2017 legislative session. Join us on February 9, 2017.

Children’s Advocacy Day at the Capitol began in 2004 as an effort to unite advocates from across the state to raise their voices on behalf of children’s safety, health, education, and economic well-being. Hundreds of advocates from counties across Kentucky now gather at the Capitol in Frankfort every year to rally on behalf of children and to promote priorities on the Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children agenda.

The Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children is a coalition of committed agencies that are working together to make Kentucky a place with thriving communities, strong families, and successful kids. Click here to become a Blueprint partner and a sponsor of the 2017 Children’s Advocacy Day.

We need to hear from you!

Kentucky Youth Advocates wants to help you have the information and resources you need to TAKE ACTION during the 2017 legislative session. For example, we want you to feel prepared to talk with your legislators about pressing bills that will affect children at Children’s Advocacy Day and throughout the session.

Please click here to take a survey to tell Kentucky Youth Advocates how we can better equip you to stand up for kids.
