Interested in becoming a stronger advocate for Kentucky kids? Kentucky Youth Advocates will bring our advocacy toolkit and policy knowledge to you! Advocates like you are vital to the success of policies that are good for kids, and we want to equip you with everything you need to become a more effective advocate. If your group–including staff, volunteers, college classroom, or beyond–would benefit from an in-person presentation or online webinar, please contact Jessie Whitish at firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-895-8167, x. 121.
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.
Nearly 900 advocates, including more than 200 youth, came to Frankfort in 2019 to ask their legislators to make kids the commonwealth’s top priority. Read a recap of the 15th Annual Children’s Advocacy Day here.
Save the date! The 16th Annual Children’s Advocacy Day at the Capitol will be January 23, 2020.
