Legislative Resources for Child Abuse

As an element of its mission, National Children's Alliance is commited to supporting its membership base and the Children's Advocacy Center movement in general through important advocacy related efforts. Included in these efforts, is work done with federal legislators to help promote, support, and advocate for important legislation that impacts the child welfare industry. In addition, National Children's Alliance works hard to educate legislators on the important work done every day by Children's Advocacy Centers around the country. Our team of dedicated advocates is available to also support the work our members do on a local level.
