Voices for Virginia’s Children 2024 Legislative Agenda

Posted:  -  By: Allison Gilbreath

Virginia State Capitol in Richmond, Virginia, USA.

At Voices, we believe in positioning young individuals and their families as active agents in shaping policy solutions that catalyze transformative change within their communities. To achieve this, we engage directly with youth advocates and gather insights from professionals dedicated to serving families. Our approach embraces and cultivates diverse perspectives on the well-being of young people. We are dedicated to creating trauma-informed and healing-centered spaces that enable advocates to share their stories and contribute to systemic change.

As we embark on the initiatives outlined in our 2024 legislative agenda, we invite collaboration and support from stakeholders who share our vision for a more equitable and just society. Together, we can work towards dismantling the barriers that hinder the prosperity of our youth and pave the way for a brighter future.
