The Budget and the Elections
Our latest blog posts by Michele Corey and Mina Hong look at the federal and state budgets and what they mean for Michigan children, youth and families. The blogs talk about how you can utilize the budgets as a tool to engage with candidates and learn more about their plans to prioritize public investments if elected or re-elected into office.
Get Involved in the Elections
The Michigan’s Children Sandbox Party is working to raise awareness and make children’s issues a top priority this election year. Through the Sandbox Party, we are working to engage more Michiganians in the elections, encourage folks to learn about the candidates, get involved in the election process, and speak up for children’s issues.
Your Input Needed on 0-3
In partnership with other state-level advocates, Michigan’s Children is seeking your input to help identify priority issues related to the needs of our youngest residents birth through age three. Though some survey sections may not be your areas of expertise, we appreciate you taking the time to provide your input on the sections you are expert or passionate about.
We can make change happen. We can use local and state level policy advocacy to improve our communities. By joining us in the fight for public policies made in the best interest of the most challenged children, youth and families; we can ensure that all children have the supports they need to succeed in school and in life.
Michigan’s Children identifies opportunities to influence public policies on behalf of children who face the most challenges in life – children from low-income families; children of color; and children, youth and families shouldering other challenging circumstances. This includes immediate opportunities to influence public policy debates as well as long-term opportunities to shift the conversations taking place in Lansing and Washington, D.C.

Michigan’s Children works to inform you on issues that policymakers are debating and provide active and immediate ways for you to get involved in public policy debates affecting children, youth and their families.
