LaRosa with Capitol buildingHundreds of child advocates from across Kentucky are in Frankfort today, January 16, 2014 for Children’s Advocacy Day at the Capitol.

They are urging legislators to fund kids first in the next two year state budget and to support the Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children, a common agenda supported by child advocates across the state.

Over the next few weeks, there will be several ways you can take action on important children’s issues such as child abuse, youth justice, and a State Earned Income Credit. But today, two immediate actions are needed.

2. Ask the Governor, your Representative, and your Senator to restore cuts to child care and kinship care in the 2014 state budget. Click here for more details.

Children’s Advocacy Day is an important day, yet it is just one day of the legislative session. We hope you will stay engaged, and check our Ways to Act page often throughout the 2014 Kentucky General Assembly to find out how you can take action on behalf of Kentucky kids.

We need your voice today, tomorrow, and in the weeks to come. You can make a difference!
