RAISE YOUR VOICE …
… And learn to be heard! Now more than ever we need your support to educate your community, inform local elected officials, and activate your networks to advocate for better public policy on the issues that affect Ohio’s children and families.
Why now? Federal programs and funding for child welfare, child care, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, Individuals with Disabilities Act, and Headstart are being debated. Local communities support for local tax levies to fund schools and are finding it more and more difficult to secure health and human service programs. In addition, Ohio will enter its 2006-07 budget deliberations with a $3.8 billion structural deficit; a direct result of six figure job losses suffered throughout the state since 2001.
The time is NOW to raise your voice on behalf of children and families in Ohio. Learn how by attending any of the nine Advocacy Workshops offered by Voices for Children of Greater Cleveland and sponsored by Ohio United Way.
WHAT IS THE ADVOCACY WORKSHOP?
Voices for Children of Greater Cleveland’s Advocacy Workshop is a one day interactive training that will provide you with the tools and information you need to advocate for better public policy on the issues that affect Ohio’s children and families. Everyone is welcome! Our Advocacy Workshop is open to anyone who wants to improve the lives of children and families.
