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 non-profit, public, and private organizations that speaks with a common voice to create brighter futures for Kentucky kids. The Blueprint stands on three pillars: thriving communities launch strong families, strong families launch successful kids, and successful kids launch a prosperous future for Kentucky. View the 2018 Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children agenda here. Stay tuned for the 2019 Blueprint agenda. Interested in becoming a Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children partner? Sign up here.
Hundreds of youth and adults attended Children’s Advocacy Day in 2018, and we need you to help pack the rotunda and ask elected officials to prioritize kids in the 2019 legislative session.
