Important Issues - What Do I Say?

Alaska is both large and diverse, and children and youth in one community often have different needs than those in another. To effectively identify all of the unique needs we need to hear from voices across our state about the specific issues faced by children, youth and families in their community.

On this page, you will find a list of potential advocacy topics, along with links to additional information. By no means is this an exhaustive list. Instead, we hope it will spark ideas for advocacy topics that you are passionate about, or that address the needs of the children and families your organization serves.
