Happy holiday season, everyone!
Here at Kansas Action for Children, the pace has quickened as we head toward January's kickoff of the legislative session. We've been meeting with stakeholders across the state, refining our priorities and messaging for the new year, and attending conferences across the country.
I'm so excited about our new projects and initiatives -- but unfortunately I can't tell you about all of them yet! Suffice it to say, we have some great surprises in store for the rest of 2019 and the beginning of 2020.
Sometimes it seems like we're running at full speed just to stay in the same place. But we understand that it takes this kind of dedication to make the long-lasting, reliable change that Kansas kids need. As I often say, children don't raise themselves. They need supported caregivers and nurturing communities. We all have parts to play to make sure that happens.
In this month's newsletter, we're highlighting recent blog entries from our Director of Policy and Research Emily Fetsch. The subjects are sobering, and they emphasize how much we have to do next year.
