The Bounce Coalition’s Story

Children’s Advocacy Week

January 18 - January 21

We need you to ask elected officials to prioritize kids in the 2022 legislative session!

JOIN Kentucky Youth Advocates for Children’s Advocacy Week, January 18 – 21, 2022

Children’s Advocacy Day at the Capitol began in 2004 as an effort to unite advocates from across the state to raise their voices on behalf of children’s safety, health, education, and economic well-being. Hundreds of advocates from counties across Kentucky gather at the Capitol in Frankfort every year to rally on behalf of children and to promote priorities on the Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children agenda. Because one day is not enough for this important advocacy, we have shifted to Children’s Advocacy Week! Please sign up for updates on Children’s Advocacy Week, which will be a combination of in-person and virtual events.

The Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children is a coalition of committed agencies that are working together to make Kentucky a place with thriving communities, strong families, and successful kids. Stay tuned for the release of the Blueprint for Kentucky’s Children 2022 policy and budget priorities.
