One Voice for Children and Families of Southwest Louisiana
Children & Families Action Network provides leadership in advocacy education for nonprofit organizations and young people.
Children & Families Action Network, a division of Family & Youth, exists to promote mission-based advocacy for the purpose of increasing civic engagement and participation to effect changes in public policy on behalf of children, families, and communities. Participation in Children & Families Action Network (CFAN) can result in increased engagement by nonprofit leaders and volunteers in mission-based advocacy and values-driven public policy goals; strengthened capacity to develop local funding strategies to support mission-based advocacy; and implementation of peer-based support of values-driven advocacy through shared advocacy work and organizing clients to implement grass-roots advocacy.
CFAN provides its members with information about:
- local, state, and national children/family issues
- training to help organizations building mission-based advocacy teams
- opportunities to network with others
- tools needed to change public policy on behalf of children and families
CFAN has identified four impact areas to address:
