Parents As Changemakers: Effective Policy Advocacy

Wednesday, December 11, 2019, 2:00 PM CST

Register to attend or receive the recording afterward

Do you have ideas that would strengthen foster care in your area? Not sure where to start to advocate for the changes you want? We can help!

NACAC is working with CHAMPS (Children Need Amazing Parents) to help you make policy changes in your state. In this session, we will review the CHAMPS policy goals and discuss how foster and adoptive parents and kinship caregivers can work with legislators, executive branch officials, and the media. Learn how to get involved in advocating for policy reforms to strengthen foster parenting.

CHAMPS is a national campaign to ensure bright futures for kids in foster care by promoting the highest quality parenting. CHAMPS aims to spur policy reforms in 20 to 25 states over five years to ensure that foster parents are equipped with the training and support they need to be the best they can. CHAMPS also aims to help improve the public’s understanding of foster parenting and create a more positive perception of foster parents. More information is available at fosteringchamps.org.

Presented by NACAC Staff Marissa Sanders and Mary Boo.

Have questions about how to claim the adoption tax credit? NACAC’s adoption tax credit expert, Josh Kroll, presents a webinar on the federal adoption tax credit outlining the steps to file. The focus is on filing for the 2019 tax year, but also covers applying for the credit for adoptions as far back as 2016. Josh explains what parents need to do to take advantage of the credit.
Presented by Josh Kroll, NACAC staff.

Advocating for Adoption Assistance

Wednesday, February 19, 2020, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM CST

Register to attend the advocating for adoption assistance webinar or receive the recording afterward

Webinar participants will learn how to advocate for adoption assistance programs in their states or province. In these tight financial times, legislators sometimes seek to cut adoption assistance programs and advocates need to be ready to respond. Even if your adoption assistance program is not under threat, proactive advocacy can help maintain and even enhance these important benefits for children adopted from foster care.
Presented by Josh Kroll, NACAC staff.
