For 16 years advocates for kids have gathered in Frankfort for Children’s Advocacy Day at the Capitol. On Children’s Advocacy Day, advocates fill the halls of the Capitol and ask their elected officials to step up for Kentucky kids—leading to many policy wins and building awareness of issues facing kids and their families. Children’s Advocacy Day is critical to building a brighter future for Kentucky kids.

Amidst COVID-19, the strains on families, communities, and the state budget make advocacy—especially advocacy for kids—more important than ever. Because of that, we’re cancelling Children’s Advocacy Day and announcing…

Children’s Advocacy WEEK at the Capitol!
February 1-5, 2021

In anticipation of the need to reduce crowd sizes, and because one day is not enough for this important advocacy, we are shifting to Children’s Advocacy Week to space out advocacy events. Children’s Advocacy Week will feature virtual events and additional opportunities to connect with legislators and other advocates. While it is still unclear whether or not visitors will be allowed into the Capitol, we hope to have a rally and other in-person events.

Sign up to receive updates about Children’s Advocacy Week so you’ll be among the first to know the event schedule. 

As we plan for Children’s Advocacy Week, we want your feedback about the types of events you would be interested in, communications you would like to receive, and more. Your input is so helpful in planning a Children’s Advocacy Week that will make a difference for Kentucky kids. Please take this brief planning SURVEY. Everyone who fills out this survey by October 16th will be entered into a drawing to receive a Starbucks gift card.

We look forward to seeing you in February!
