Advocate for Yourself and Your Community

Do you feel strongly about an issue in your community and want to do something about it? At ASCI, we believe it is important to be active, engaged and empowered members of our community. We believe in the power of kinship to help influence local, state and federal change for all children and families. As advocates for children and families, we believe everyone has the ability to advocate for themselves and their communities and can move to action, today!

Through advocacy at ASCI, ASCI caregivers, birth parents, youth and staff will be empowered to:

  1. Become more engaged and knowledgeable about the legislative process and rights as voters.
  2. Seek opportunities to engage with elected officials.
  3. Be active members within their communities by using their voices to speak up for themselves and others.
