Advocacy Resources & Toolkits
This Advocacy Toolkit includes tips, strategies, and resources to confidently take action and make advocacy a part of your everyday life. Becoming more comfortable with basic advocacy tools will prepare you to take action when Illinois Action for Children sends alerts about important child care and early education issues.
For more seasoned advocates, this Advocacy Toolkit provides the support you need for your next critical step of advocacy – mentoring a new advocate. Mentoring is an important building block in the development of the successful advocate. We encourage you to start building the next generation of advocates with the help of this guide.
With your involvement, we become more effective as a coalition and, in turn, build brighter futures for children and their families!
