"We're organized, we're passionate and we're not leaving."
Let’s Grow Kids Ambassadors and Action Teams from around the state gathered at Vermont Technical College in Randolph last Thursday, December 1, to celebrate the work we’ve done thus far, to learn from advocacy experts, and to map out the positive, lasting change we can create for all of Vermont’s children. Highlights include:
- One-on-one connections with legislators. Share personal perspectives that help them understand why this issue matters to you and treat legislators as human beings. “If you can connect with the people who are able to make change, you’re going to win.”
- A plan. “You need to know where you’re headed and how you’re going to get there. Never lose sight of that big prize at the end but you have to know what you’re going to do tomorrow.“
- A consistent message. “Everything you do has to be so obvious, so visible, that when you’re in the State House, they know who you are.”
- Love. “Make sure legislators understand it’s not about dollars or your organization, it’s about the love between a parent and their child. Because how can you not do this for kids?
