What is advocacy?
Advocacy is a key component to ensure and improve the health and well-being of all children. Children and families face many issues throughout life that are influenced by local, state and federal policies. Many confront laws regarding abuse, neglect, chronic illness or disability during times of stress and often need the assistance of organizations like Children's Hospital and Health System to help them voice their concerns.
Children don't have a voice in the decisions that affect them and their families. Advocacy efforts rely on the strength and action of volunteers who care about kids and want to make a difference.
With your help, we aim to:
- 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 through organized advocacy efforts.
These goals are achieved through legislative input, public awareness and individual action.
