Maybe you think college tuition should be free?
Or maybe you want to start a jobs program in southern West Virginia?
Perhaps you want to cut government waste in a particular sector, or have always wanted to change the way we teach health in our schools?
Since 2012, the Our Children, Our Future campaign has taken the bold and ambitious ideas of West Virginians just like you and helped them become actual laws.
The Our Children, Our Future process relies on our citizens to pick the issues we will fight for. It’s how we ended up winning 18 policy victories in the last three years – ranging from truancy reform and expanding school breakfast to raising the minimum wage and protecting child care centers.
Now, you have the chance to help shape what issues the Our Children, Our Future campaign will work on for the next 5-10 years.
We’re compiling a platform of child poverty issues that we will present to every single person running for office, including the candidates for Governor, called the “Commitment to Our Children, Our Future.” One of those Commitment issues could be yours. Submit it now at ocofwv.org/commitment
It takes just a few minutes, and your idea could be seen by every single candidate for statewide office in West Virginia.
Once we decide on our Commitment, we will ask every candidate for their responses to our issues – and compile a voter guide based on the results. That voter guide will then be distributed to thousands of West Virginians, and available online too.
Don’t miss the opportunity to have your voice heard!
