Join Our Children, Our Future: The Campaign to End Child Poverty


What we can do

We hope you will join us. Here are some of the ways you can add your voice to this effort:

-- Become a co-sponsor and add your organization’s name to our efforts. You will receive email updates and be able to vote on our statewide platform each year.

-- Participate in our upcoming Policy Symposium to help build our 2014 platform, Sept. 24-25 in Charleston, or come to one of our Policy Workshops (Aug. 21 in Beckley or Aug. 23 in Bridgeport) to get the skills and tools you need.

-- Host a community meeting to get the conversation started about what can be done in your region.

-- Make a donation. This campaign will require funding to research, print materials, educate our lawmakers, and mobilize kids and families to make their voices heard.

For information, contact West Virginia Healthy Kids & Families director Stephen Smith (ssmith@wvhealthykids .org, 304-610-6512).
