What is an Advocacy Day?

ICYMI: Here’s a recap of our most recent advocacy opportunity at the 2019 General Assembly —  The 2019 Campaign for a Trauma-Informed Virginia Advocacy Day. Advocates from across the state gathered in support of the 2019 virtual and in-person Campaign for a Trauma-Informed Virginia Advocacy Day. They wore purple and white stickers displaying the message – I am #TraumaInformedVA.
