Advocacy means to speak up, to plead the case of another or to champion a cause. It’s an important way in which we can help ensure and improve the health and well-being of all children.
Children and families face many issues that are influenced by local, state and federal policies. Many confront laws regarding abuse, neglect, chronic illness or disability during times of stress and need the assistance of organizations like Children's Hospital of Wisconsin to help them voice their concerns.
Children often don't have a voice in the decisions that affect them. Advocacy efforts rely on the strength and active involvement of volunteers who care about kids and want to make a difference.
With your help, we can:
- Improve the health and well-being of children by positively impacting public policy in a way that is more sensitive to the needs of children.
- Build a network of supporters to create a stronger voice for children and their families through organized advocacy efforts.
