Join us for Children’s Advocacy Day!

On April 8th, CHILDREN AT RISK is uniting advocates from across Texas to come together at the Texas Capitol with one goal in mind: improving the lives of children.

In a legislative session where the budget, water, education, and much more will receive top billing in Austin, it is urgent that we show our state’s leaders that we are here to stand for the needs of Texas’ children.  We need to remind them to invest in education, protect vital services, and improve the quality of life for our children.  By coming together at the Texas Capitol for Children’s Advocacy Day and speaking out on behalf of our youth, we can ensure that children are made a priority during the 83rd Legislative Session.
