Children’s Policy Summit 2020

Over three days, join the Arkansas Kids Count Coalition for our 2020 Children’s Policy Summit to help prepare child advocates around the state for the 2021 Arkansas General Assembly. You can pick and choose which sessions to attend. On Tuesday, we’ll start-off with a panel of state legislators talking about what laws they expect the General Assembly to consider. On Wednesday, we’ll have a panel of advocates sharing what they will be advocating for at the Capitol. On Thursday, there will be an advocacy training. And throughout the three days we will have opportunities for you to talk with fellow advocates in the region where you live. Register below, separately, for each meeting you would like to attend.
