Become a stronger advocate in 2019 by attending our annual Speak Up for Kids Day at the Capitol on March 19. A joint effort of Clayton Early Learning, Children’s Hospital Colorado, and the Colorado Children’s Campaign, Speak Up for Kids Day at the Capitol is a free event that offers new and emerging child advocates an insider’s perspective on the policy making process. Participants get the training and support needed to speak up effectively on the issues that matter most to Colorado kids.

If you care about kids’ issues but are uncertain how to make your voice heard on policy issues, this is the event for you! If you are a more experienced advocate or have attended Speak Up multiple times in the past, we encourage you to participate as an advocacy coach or assistant advocacy coach. Save the date on your calendar and stay tuned to KidsFlash for registration information. Learn more on our website, and contact Jacy Montoya Price with questions, or to sign up as a partner organization.
