PLEDGE to Make Kids and Families a Priority in 2019

There are more than 2 million children in Michigan, nearly 22 percent of the population – and they rely on the rest of us to make policy decisions that impact their futures. But that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve a voice at the table. With major changes occurring in Congress, the Governor’s Office, the state House and Senate, there is no more important time than now to ensure that our newly elected officials in January start working on the issues that matter most to Michigan’s children.
We are pledging to make it as easy as possible for people like you – parents, family members, neighbors, teachers, health care and other service providers, business and faith leaders – to raise their voices with newly elected officials from November until the end of this legislative session by:
    • Sharing Important and Timely Research and policy analysis related to children and family policy issues
    • Alerting People at specific points in time when their voice can have the most impact on issues that matter to kids
    • Creating Opportunities with partners for young people, parents, and service providers to raise their voices directly with policymakers
    • Providing Guidance and technical assistance to make sure your advocacy is backed by strategy

Take the Pledge!

Whether you have 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or more time during the week, you already have what it takes to make your voice heard and call for real change for children, youth, and families. Join us and take the pledge to make children and family issues a priority for state and federal leaders! Starting right after the election, we’ll be sharing regular information, training and advice, and real-time opportunities to make your voice heard with Michigan’s leaders.

With kids in mind, I pledge to:

    • Take and Make opportunities to get to know elected officials and raise my voice throughout the year and when big decisions for kids and families are being made
    • Be a Resource to my elected officials, informing them with my experience and work
    • Help My Elected Officials Learn from the children and families whom they represent

Take the Pledge today!
