Every child in Washington should have a great childhood, full of opportunities to reach their vast potential. Together, parents, policymakers and advocates like you can give kids the childhoods they deserve.
Come learn how your leadership can motivate lawmakers to make decisions that improve the lives of Washington’s kids. Come to Advocacy Camp!
The Children’s Alliance Advocacy Camp is held at the Dumas Bay Centre, 3200 SW Dash Point Rd, Federal Way, WA 98023 from Tuesday, October 2nd at 10 a.m. to Thursday, October 4th at 3 p.m.
In this interactive training, you will learn to:
- Communicate with elected officials
- Build community and network
- Understand the legislative process
- Bring your authentic voice to advocacy
Participants will have an opportunity to network with other advocates and learn more about other advocacy efforts across the state. By the end of the training, individuals will go home with new advocacy skills, new ideas for advocacy efforts, and probably a new friendship.
Advocacy Camp is open to all Washington state adult residents. In order to attend, you must be an online member of the Children’s Alliance. Join us.
We seek to reflect the diversity of Washington’s families in our participants. We highly encourage parents and guardians of children personally affected by Children’s Alliance policy issues to apply. We want participants committed to advocating for policies that benefit children. We encourage applicants to join with others and apply as a group.
Cost for Advocacy Camp is $425 for members of the general public and $325 for current Children’s Alliance organizational members (staff, board, and volunteers). Training costs include all materials, meals, and lodging.
Scholarships, child care assistance, travel reimbursements, and interpretation services are available. Please do not let cost keep you from applying.
We prefer applications by Thursday, August 30th. Applications after that date will be reviewed based on space.
