In 1977, a group of 10 concerned Arkansans founded Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, believing that children needed an independent voice to speak up for their interests. In that spirit, AACF invites you to join us for our Friends of Children Annual Luncheon on Tuesday, October 8 at 11:30 a.m. at the DoubleTree Hotel, where we’ll celebrate the power of advocacy in improving the lives of children and families across our state.
This year, we are privileged to honor First Lady Susan Hutchinson, Antwan Phillips and Kathy Webb for their important work on behalf of our state’s children, and for all they’ve done to ensure that kids in Arkansas have the resources and opportunities they need to be healthy and successful.
Since 1977, AACF’s legislative advocacy and policy recommendations have helped create enduring social change in our communities. Our work has helped reduce the number of uninsured children in this state from 21 to 4 percent, increase access to quality pre-K education for 3- and 4-year-olds from low-income families, overhaul the juvenile justice system in our state, and advance smart economic policies that help families and communities thrive. Your sponsorship will honor Mrs. Hutchinson, Antwan and Kathy – but it will do so much more. You’ll be helping to make Arkansas an even better place to be a child.
If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact Fran Carter at 501-476-3477 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate your consideration and look forward to having you with us on October 8!
