Background / General Information
The Children's Advocates Roundtable,
established in 1990, is an affiliation of over 200 statewide
and regional children's policy organizations, representing
over twenty issue disciplines (e.g., child
abuse prevention, child care, education, poverty, housing,
juvenile justice). The Roundtable is convened
by the Children's Advocacy Institute, and is committed
to providing a setting where statewide and locally-based
children's advocates gather with advocates from other
children's issue disciplines to share resources, information,
and knowledge, and strategize on behalf of children;
an opportunity to educate each other about the variety
of issues and legislation that affect children and youth
— facilitating prioritization of issues and minimizing
infighting over limited state resources historically
budgeted for children's programs; an opportunity to
collaborate on joint projects that promote the interests
of children and families; and a setting to foster a
children's political movement, committed to ensuring
that every child in California is economically secure,
gets a good education, has access to health care, and
lives in a safe environment.
The full Children's Advocates Roundtable meets quarterly. The date of the next full Roundtable is Aug. 29, 2019.
Each Roundtable consists of
- Detailed discussions of emerging areas of significance for children's advocates.
- Discussions of timely matters important to all children's advocates, such as the budget, elections, or "inside the horseshoe" information.
- An opportunity for Roundtable members to discuss their legislative and advocacy priorities, and seek support and assistance from other members.
