Every child deserves a strong start in life. This is why we're bringing our supporters from all over the country together to call on our elected leaders to invest in children from the start.
What is the Advocacy Summit?
The Advocacy Summit is a three-day experience of dynamic sessions, exciting speakers and meetings with your elected leaders. The summit provides a unique opportunity for our supporters to delve deeper into the issues, receive training from leading experts and act to ensure that matters critical to children’s lives and futures are prioritized by our elected leaders.
The Advocacy Summit convenes congressional leaders, journalists, policy experts and individuals just like you committed to a shared vision for the future of children. Whether you have attended the summit before or are attending for the first time, you will find this summit inspiring, helpful and valuable. You’ll return home as an even stronger voice for children.

Organizations like yours will continue to make a tremendous difference throughout the world.” – Senator Susan Collins (R-ME)
