Two dozen organizations joined us January 11 for Children’s Day at the Capitol. Annually, organizations with an interest in bettering the lives of children and families will gather during the legislative session to inform the public, lawmakers, government staff and other advocates about our work.

The day included informational booths in the Rotunda, lunch, and a short program in the Rotunda featuring a keynote from Cassie Nagel, Education & Public Awareness Specialist with Children’s Home Society, titled Creating Community Capacity.
