Registration for our March 22 Speak Up for Kids Day at the Capitol is now open. Visit www.bit.ly/SPEAKUP17 for more information and to register today!
Our annual advocacy day at the Colorado State Capitol, in partnership with Clayton Early Learning and Children’s Hospital Colorado, trains new and emerging advocates on early childhood and child health bills under consideration by the Colorado General Assembly, as well as how to speak up effectively with elected officials. After learning about priority legislation and hearing directly from legislators on how to advocate successfully, participants work with an experienced advocacy coach to prepare for and engage in visits with the legislators who represent them. Following lunch and an inspirational keynote speaker, the day finishes with skills-building workshops and networking opportunities. We hope you will consider joining us to enhance your skills as an advocate for Colorado kids.
Speak Up for Kids is one of the best advocacy days in Colorado, but don’t just take our word for it, check out what past participants have to say:
- “The focused policy information gave me confidence!”
- “Really motivating and informative!”
- “I feel a lot more comfortable [speaking up] after today.”
- “What an amazing experience!”
- “This is the most valuable of all the advocacy days I have attended.”
We look forward to seeing you at Speak Up for Kids on March 22 and to continued collaboration to ensure every child in Colorado has every chance to succeed.
