We are thankful for your tireless support! With your support last year, we had a successful 2019 GA Session, and we looked forward to seeing all that we accomplish again this 2020 Session on behalf of Virginia’s children.
We hope you will be able to join us virtually and in-person for our 2020 Campaign for a Trauma-Informed VA Advocacy Day on January 21st! If you have not registered yet, make sure you register NOW using this link! With your help, we can build a resilient Commonwealth by speaking up for our kids.
Over 30 organizations have endorsed our Unified Policy Agenda thus far. Let’s continue to uplift these priorities this 2020 Session!
This is our 2nd Campaign year, and we encourage you to promote the theme:
I am #TraumaInformedVA
Step One: Find your legislator
Step Two: Create a video or promo telling everyone why you are #TraumaInformedVA
You can follow the same theme using these tactics:
[for an organization] We support @VaKids on the Campaign for a #TraumInformedVA, because all children should have the opportunity to live long healthy and successful lives. https://vakids.org/trauma-informed-va/unified-policy-agenda
I am #TraumaInformedVA, because I believe all schools should have the right supports in place to respond to students experiencing trauma. https://vakids.org/trauma-informed-va/trauma-talking-points
I am #TraumaInformedVA, because communities, agencies, and professionals have an increased access to resources that foster resiliency through the presence of their trauma-informed community networks. https://vakids.org/trauma-informed-va/trauma-informed-community-networks
I am #TraumaInformedVA, because all child-serving organizations and agencies need adverse childhood experience training in order to meet children where they are and resist retraumatization. https://vakids.org/trauma-informed-va/trauma-talking-points
I am #TraumaInformedVA, because VA should promote policies that reduce maternal and infant disparities by improving access to healthcare. https://vakids.org/trauma-informed-va/trauma-talking-points
I am #TraumaInformedVA, because children should have access to early childhood education through early childhood mental health consultations to reduce preschool suspensions and expulsions. https://vakids.org/trauma-informed-va/trauma-talking-points
I am #TraumaInformedVA, because I participate in my local community network to work across disciplines and share best practices. Please support our work by increasing FACT funding. https://vakids.org/trauma-informed-va/trauma-informed-community-networks
I am #TraumaInformedVA because [for example: I am a member of a trauma-informed community network… I’ve been trained to be trauma-informed through ACES training… because I ask “what happened to you?”] https://vakids.org/trauma-informed-va/trauma-talking-points
