Have a Heart for Kids Day is your day to speak up for kids. Right now, your voice matters. Join hundreds of child, youth, and family advocates from across Washington State and speak up for kids!

disproportionately affect children of color.
When legislators gathered in Olympia from late November of 2011 to April 2012, we were there, too.
