Advancing Whole Child Policy

Voices for Georgia’s Children leads the charge to ensure Georgia is a state where all children thrive, every single one. We work to improve policies and systems that impact child well-being because one policy change can affect millions of children at once. Focusing on the whole child, we lead research and advocacy that remove inequity from our systems and disparities in outcomes.

Educate.

We conduct research and equip policymakers with the best information about the challenges children are facing and what they can do about it.

Convene.

Because we believe we are stronger together, we lead coalitions and advocacy campaigns to advance policy and systems change.

Influence.

We are a trusted partner to get laws passed, priorities set, and investments made in our legislature and our child-serving agencies.
