OUR CHILDREN: AN INVESTMENT WE CAN AGREE ON
2009 NC Child and Family Lobby Day
Join Us to Lobby for North Carolina’s Children and Families!
Who: Sponsored by the Covenant with North Carolina’s Children, Action for Children NC, Council for Children’s Rights, Children and Family Services Association-NC, NC Association of Educators, National Association of Social Workers-NC, and Prevent Child Abuse NC.
What: Join us for a day of action at the General Assembly! As NC legislators consider devastating budget cuts, we must speak out for children and families. In addition to direct advocacy, we’ll be holding a press conference at 1 pm to make our case to the press and the public.
When: Wednesday, 6/24, 11 am – 3 pm
Where: NC General Assembly (Specific meeting location inside the building is forthcoming)
Why: North Carolina’s children are the foundation of our future prosperity. When we invest in our children, they will pay us back through a lifetime of productivity and responsible citizenship. Our future will be determined by how well we prepare our next generation for the tremendous responsibilities of adulthood. Unfortunately, the current budget shortfall threatens investments in the health, education, and safety of our children. It’s time to come together to make sure that short-sighted solutions don’t jeopardize our future prosperity.
