I am very excited to invite you to join the NC Child team in March for two days of inspiration, critical thinking, brainstorming, and informative sessions to take all our work to the next level. 2022 Kids is a free two-day policy summit for North Carolina’s advocates for children. I’m honored to serve as the event co-chair this year, along with my colleague Vikki Crouse.

You are invited to help us:

  • Learn from peers who are developing community-driven policy solutions.
  • Deepen awareness and work on centering racial equity, and
  • Connect and build power to advance racially equitably public policies.

We are delighted that the Reverend Dr. Starsky Wilson, President and CEO of the Children’s Defense Fund, will be with us as our keynote speaker. 

Community-led advocacy is a powerful tool for building sustainable, racially equitable, and bold public policies that can transform the lives of children and their families in North Carolina.  

As we move into year three (!) of the pandemic, our children and their families continue to take the brunt of it. It is critical for child advocates to understand how the voices of families who are directly impacted by public policies can move to a central role in policy change efforts. We invite you join us, and to come learn along with our team.   

I hope to see you there!
