Caregiver Day at the Capitol

Join foster, kinship, guardian, and adoptive caregivers in California to bring the voice of children in/from foster care to policymakers. This policymaker education day begins with a continental breakfast and training program. Caregivers are placed in small teams with a group leader for Capitol visits. After lunch, caregivers meet with California Assembly and Senate offices in the Capitol. In the afternoon, participants celebrate and debrief at a reception. ** There is a significant amount of walking from the morning venue to the Capitol meetings. Caregivers with limited mobility, may choose to attend the morning training and presentations and skip the in-person meetings.
