Legislative Advocacy for Children
One of the most effective ways to make our communities better for children, now and in the future, is legislative advocacy. Quite simply, this means supporting laws and policies that are good for children—such as those that help prevent injuries or improve access to health care—and opposing ones that are not.
An Expert Resource on Health Care Issues Affecting Children
Connecticut Children’s is often called upon by policy makers to act as an expert resource on health care issues that affect children. Too often, kids do not have a voice in the decisions that affect them and their families. Connecticut Children’s advocacy efforts are aimed at ensuring that children’s concerns are always heard when public policies are made.
