Can’t make it to this year’s CWLA National Conference? You can still lend your voice for children and families. This Tuesday, February 28 while hundreds of children’s advocates visit the Hill to talk to their Members of Congress, you can join them virtually.
Read this CWLA’s 2012 “Priorities for Congress,” our summary document of key asks for Advocacy Day. Email your representatives or call them on Tuesday, February 28 using the Capitol Switch Board number 1-866-922-4970. Tell your Senators and Representative to make children a national priority by enacting comprehensive child welfare finance reform, protecting funding for programs serving vulnerable children and families, and joining and participating in the Congressional Caucuses on Foster Youth. See our alert page for more details on these three asks.
Tell your friends and colleagues that they too should lend their voices for children and families.

Dear friend,
Did you know that Tuesday, February 28 is going to be the year’s largest national advocacy event of the year for child welfare, human service and behavioral health professionals?  I’m calling my Senators and House Rep using the Capitol Switch Board number, 1-866-922-4970 to tell them to prioritize children and families. Join me and the Child Welfare League of America by learning more on their website, and calling your Congressional representatives too.
