Family First Day of Action

Calling all foster care advocates!

We need your help to ensure Congress passes the Family First Prevention Services Act, a major bipartisan bill that would strengthen the child welfare system! The House passed the bill in June, and the Senate urgently needs to pass the Family First Prevention Services Act THIS WEEK if it is to become law this year.

It is critical that Senators hear from as many constituents as possible…. Please contact them tomorrow and ask them to support the Family First Act!

 

#FamilyFirstAct Twitter Town Hall

Family First Act Twitter Townhall

Join the #FamilyFirstAct Twitter Townhall, Monday @ 11 AM PDT

To raise awareness of the Family First Prevention Services Act at a critical juncture, Foster Club and others will host a virtual Twitter town hall. We are inviting and asking partners, stakeholders, individuals and other interested parties to share thoughts on the Family First Act and its benefits and impacts. The goal would be to generate at least 100 tweets during that hour. All tweets need to use the hashtag #FamilyFirstAct to contribute to the discussion and be visible to all.
