Whether you have children or not, Children’s Day at the Capitol is an opportunity for elected officials, decision makers and the public to learn more about the issues that affect Georgia’s children and our community.
Issues range from early childhood to education, from child health to transitioning youth. By speaking with a variety of child advocates, people can better understand how investing in Georgia’s children through good public policy is a win for children and the state. Children’s Day is also a great opportunity for child advocates to unite as one powerful voice for Georgia’s children.
Who: Voices for Georgia’s Children and 24 partner organizations (list below)
What: Will host the first-ever Children’s Day at the Capitol
When: Tuesday, February 28 from 9 am to 2 pm
Where: Georgia State Capitol (Second Floor, South Side)
The lunch hour will include a Q&A session with several pages to learn about what drew them to the capitol, their professional goals, and their thoughts on what responsibilities communities and the state have to children and youth.
Established in 2003, Voices for Georgia’s Children is a nonprofit child policy and advocacy organization that envisions a Georgia where children are safe, healthy, educated, employable, and connected to their family and community. It is our mission to be a powerful, unifying voice for a public agenda that ensures the well being of all of Georgia’s children.
To fulfill our mission and, ultimately, improve the well being of Georgia’s children, we provide the necessary research-based information, measures, collective voice and proposed legislation to help guide decision makers in the right direction – that is, supporting policies that ensure Georgia’s children grow up to be healthy, educated and productive citizens.
