Strengthening Our Collective Impact

The event aimed to provide a dynamic opportunity to connect, share, and learn effective strategies and best practices through workshops on topics such as systems change at the local, state, and national levels; recruiting, training, and supporting diverse family leaders; youth leadership development; and more! Events kicked off with Family Voices' 25th Anniversary Celebration on the Hill.
