The 2022 IAK retreat was a success!
On June 9-10, we had the pleasure of hosting our first in-person It’s About Kids (IAK) Network retreat since 2019! Our staff was so grateful to be joined by an incredible group of advocates from across the state. During our time together in Breckenridge, we heard from our policy staff on legislative successes, witnessed the first in-person KIDS COUNT presentation since the pandemic began, and engaged in numerous conversations around child well-being in Colorado.
Thank you to all the IAK members who joined us for this informative and enriching event. We leave this retreat each year feeling both motivated and enriched, as it is truly inspiring to hear from our networks about how recent legislation is impacting their communities. In addition, the feedback provided at this retreat serves as an essential tool as we develop our policy priorities for 2023, and we can’t thank our participants enough for their devotion to ensuring every chance for every child.
IAK is the Colorado Children’s Campaign’s statewide child advocacy network. It is comprised of health, early childhood, education, and other community issue professionals. These engaged citizens are joined together by their concern for the well-being of Colorado’s children, and advocate for Colorado children by staying informed about children’s issues in our state. IAK members also contact their legislators during important public policy decisions impacting kids, participate in public events and rallies in support of kids, and share information about Colorado kids with their communities.
