Raise Your Voice for Kids
Children are the nation’s largest population segment that can’t influence legislators with their vote. Lobbyists influence policymakers on behalf of healthcare, tobacco, energy, the environment, senior citizens – and hundreds of others. They have strong influence in what happens – or doesn’t happen – in local, state and federal policymaking. Why? Because they have money.
Who lobbies on behalf of Ohio’s children? We do. Voices for Ohio’s Children. And you can too. “Raise Your Voice for Kids”
is about generating strong grassroots support for Ohio’s children. Our combined voices provide the strength – and the volume – needed to ensure Ohio’s policymakers create laws to keep Ohio’s children safe, educated, healthy, connected and employable.
