Effectively Conveying Your Messages

How you talk about children and families and your advocacy goals can be as important as your advocacy strategies. It’s important to think about your messaging techniques—how you frame your issue and explain it to others—as you plan and implement your advocacy efforts.

We hope these resources will help you in your advocacy efforts to ensure that children who cannot remain at home are placed safely with families who have they support they need.
