Election Advocacy Training- NoVA & RVA!

Posted:  -  By: Voices for VA's Kids

This is the time of year that candidates start making the rounds– neighborhood meetings, special events, town halls, Candidate Forums (cough, cough) you name it! These informal settings provide a great opportunity to engage candidates in a conversation. Voices is ready to help you make these informal encounters into meaningful exchanges around children’s issues.

This series will focus on how to be an advocate for early childhood education– healthy moms and babies, quality child care and preschool– but all advocates are welcome!
