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.
