Statehouse Advocacy Day for Children & Youth

Voices will be set up in the “card room” outside the House chamber with information about our legislative agenda, our coalitions and campaigns. We’ll be formally launching our campaign to establish an Office of Child Advocate to provide independent oversight and recommendations for the child protection system, and talking with legislators about the need to strengthen the Reach Up income assistance program for Vermont families living in extreme poverty. Join us!

Call (229-6377) or email (vtkids@voicesforvtkids.org) to learn more.

Conference: Choosing Equity

Voices for Vermont’s Children is presenting a one-day conference packed with information and resources to lay the groundwork for powerful policy advocacy on behalf of children. We’ll share current research about policies that improve children’s lives, and why it’s critical to keep the whole child in mind while pushing for comprehensive solutions. After lunch we’ll hone our skills with workshops on communications, building political power, and legislative advocacy tools.

We are pleased to share that our keynote speaker is Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha. Dr. Mona is a pediatrician, medical educator, activist and author of What the Eyes Don’t See. She was named one of Time Magazine's Most Influential People in 2016 for her role in exposing the Flint, Michigan water crisis and her public health advocacy in response to the crisis.
