The 12th Annual Children’s Advocacy Day at the Capitol is coming up soon! Nearly 1,000 youth and adults attended Children’s Advocacy Day in 2015, and we need you to help pack the rotunda and ask elected officials to prioritize kids in 2016. The day will include a rally, Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children information sessions, meetings with legislators, and a celebration of 25 years of Kentucky KIDS COUNT.

Prepare to be an advocate with an upcoming webinar: Step Up for Kids in the 2016 Legislative Session
What do I need to know to make the most out of Children’s Advocacy Day on January 14, 2016? What are the biggest issues facing kids during the 2016 legislative session? Does my voice matter to elected officials? Who are my legislators, and how do I set up a meeting with them?
Answers to these questions and more will be addressed during the Step Up for Kids in the 2016 Legislative Session webinar. You will learn how to be confident in attending Children’s Advocacy Day and advocating on behalf of children throughout the 2016 General Assembly.

I am looking forward to reviewing the priorities on the blueprint agenda. I am eager to learn better ways of getting our senators support for should not be partisan issues.
