Families Rising Webinar: Advocating for Adoption Assistance

March 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Learn how to advocate for adoption assistance programs in your state 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.

(Please note: 1- this session covers how to advocate for the system, if you are interested in advocating for adoption assistance specifically for your family, you will want to access the Adoption Assistance Benefits and Eligibility webinar and 2- a recording of the session will be sent to all registrants after the webinar has concluded.)
