The most important thing you can do at the conference is promote child welfare priorities on Capitol Hill! CWLA’s Advocacy Day is the largest national advocacy event of the year focused on child welfare policy in Washington. On April 28, hundreds of conference attendees will go make their voices heard on Capitol Hill. With a new Congress in power led by many new members in key positions, this year’s meetings will be very important.
It will be an opportunity for both CWLA members and partners to educate Congress on what you do and what is needed. The Plenary Session: Policy Briefing on Monday afternoon will help prepare you for congressional visits. Congress will likely be in the middle of a major debate on the budget, appropriations, and the potential impact on child welfare and child welfare funding.
Join us and head to Capitol Hill to meet with the new Congress!
