A Day at the Capitol for Oklahoma Children

We are fast approaching Child Advocacy Day, held on Wednesday, May 8, at the Oklahoma State Capitol. The Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy is pleased to be collaborating with the organization, Let’s Fix This, to once again hold a day for regular folks to sharpen their skillsets when it comes to effectively communicating with legislators and policy-makers.

Advocacy Day will include seminars on successful legislative and media outreach as well as updates on child and family-focused bills that are making their way through the legislative process. We will also be meeting directly with lawmakers on several key pieces of legislation that impact our youngest residents. We encourage all Oklahomans who want to make a difference to register to attend via the “events” tab on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/OKChildAdv/) or through our website at OICA.org.

In addition to our free advocacy day at the capitol, OICA will also host a Child Advocate’s Luncheon (attendees are required to make a donation). This event will be held at the Phillips Pavilion on the Governor’s Mansion grounds next to the Oklahoma State Capitol.
