Voices Nationwide Network Electoral Advocacy Efforts Continue
As we mentioned in our blog last Wednesday, many of our Voices members are doing a fantastic job creating advocacy tools for the upcoming election. Here are some of the most recent additions:
- Voices for Illinois Children has produced an election advocacy toolkit that includes a list of questions to ask candidates and also has ideas on how to hold a community forum.
The Colorado Children’s Campaign also created user friendly guides for the upcoming election, and provides information on who is running for office at the local, state, and national level.
- In Washington state, the Children’s Alliance is also active in campaigning for children through their Vote for Children Action Team.
- Public Citizens for Children and Youth (PCCY) in Pennsylvania has a Make Kids Matter Campaign in which they have been exploring trends and topics most relevant to children that they can ask about during the election cycle.
- The Children’s Action Alliance in Arizona has compiled a number of resources, including candidate questionnaires and information about how to make sure your voter registration is up to date.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on ongoing efforts of member organizations as we get closer to Election Day.
