Right now, citizens all over the state are building grassroots campaigns to shape and pass new state policies during the 2016 legislative session.
These are citizens who are passionate about helping children and families, promoting healthy lifestyles, improving their community, strengthening the local economy, and a host of other issues. I imagine they are people just like you.
They’re part of the Our Children, Our Future campaign, and they are working together on policies, organizing and leadership development to end child poverty in West Virginia.
In July and August, these passionate and engaged West Virginians are traveling around the state, and coming to a community near you. They are looking for community leaders, agencies and organizations from all walks of life to join them in their effort to end child poverty. They’re looking for you.

Come join other community leaders from your region to hear about the issues that are building some political momentum this year.
You’ll learn where you can get involved. You’ll have a chance to hear from local leaders, youth and legislators, and a chance to ask them what their priorities are and where they will stand during the legislative session.
And you will get trained on how to be a powerful, effective ally for children, families and communities in West Virginia.
