Lifting Up Families
Hybrid Advocacy Day

January 24, 2024


Lifting Up Families Champions   Advocate Insight  •  Legislative Meetings 

We invite you to partner with us for a
Lifting Up Families HYBRID Advocacy Day!

Come prepared to hear from legislative champions committed to strengthening our safety net programs, protecting the progress we have made in the last couple years, and committing to do more in 2024-25.  For families to be successful then the programs that lift them up must be coordinated.  No longer can we only talk about child care or housing or food insecurity.  Moving forward, advocates in this space are linking arms to lift up the needs of families and support them with achieving stability and self-sufficiency.

Following the presentations, all are being encouraged to schedule either a face-to-face or ZOOM call with their elected officials. 

This advocacy day will be a hybrid format, both in-person and virtual.  In-person attendance will be limited due to space. Please indicate on the registration whether you will be virtual or interested in attending in-person.
