As the National Home Visiting Summit returns to D.C. for our first in-person gathering in three years, the Advocacy & Policy Community of Practice (CoP) invites state systems leaders, advocates, policy champions, families, and providers to join us on Capitol Hill to meet with your Congressional leaders to raise awareness about home visiting and the federal priorities needed to sustain and scale its impact on families and communities.
Participants joining the Summit virtually are also encouraged to set up meetings with their Congressional representatives to harness the power of virtual storytelling to build awareness about the impact of high-quality home visiting on families and young children.
In the months leading up to the Summit, the Advocacy & Policy Community of Practice, in partnership with Start Early, will offer a suite of resources to prepare advocates to engage their elected leaders on Capitol Hill. This will include virtual webinars, training materials, networking opportunities, and individual TA to support participants to effectively communicate with members of their Congressional delegation in January.
Summit attendees – both virtual and in-person – will indicate whether they plan to participate in Capitol Hill visits when registering for the 2024 National Home Visiting Summit.
