We make KIDS COUNT! We are the go-to resource for data on child well-being and can help answer the question, “how are our kids doing?” Each year, we release new reports and snapshots to highlight important, timely issues that impact children. Our data center contains over 100 state-level and 40 local-level indicators on child well-being and is part of the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s national effort to highlight the critical role data plays in public policy. Our KIDS COUNT work helps inform our advocacy efforts and policy recommendations.

Equity Impact Statements

What is the impact of the policy? That is the question our equity impact statements answer. Voices encourages policymakers, policy analysts, organizations, and advocates to do the same. Through these equity impact statements, you will have a greater understanding of how our Racial Truth & Reconciliation Virginia policy priorities impact children, families, and communities of color at the state-level.
