2022 Kids is a two-day policy summit for North Carolina’s advocates for children. You are invited to help us:
Community-led advocacy is essential for building sustainable, racially equitable, and bold public policies that transform the lives of children and their families in North Carolina. As our communities continue to feel the impact of the pandemic, it is critical now more than ever for child advocates to understand how the voices of families who are directly impacted by policies can move to a central role in policy change efforts.
We hope you will join us virtually for two days of inspiration, critical thinking, brainstorming, and informative sessions to take all our work to the next level.
Anyone who advocates for children and their families in North Carolina! Advocates for early childhood, juvenile justice, education, health, immigration reform, mental health, foster care, child abuse prevention, and more are invited to attend.
All sessions will be available in both English and Spanish, thanks to a live interpreter.
Yes. Everyone who registers for the event will be able to watch the recorded sessions afterwards.
