Restore Opportunity State Tour Dates Announced

As an Advisory Committee Member of the Restore Opportunity Now campaign, I am inviting you to participate in and share information about human services gatherings happening across the State. Restore Opportunity Now is a statewide coalition of more than 340 human services nonprofit providers, calling on the State to make key investments in our workforce and contracts to ensure that our quality services can continue to lift up the communities we serve.

The Campaign launched last year and this summer we will be going around the State to engage more nonprofits in the conversation. Whether you are an active coalition member, looking to get more involved, or new to the discussion, we invite you to join us at one of our local meetings. Please see the attached flyer for the current dates and locations, and we will share updated information as we confirm more locations. Please also share this with your networks.

We look forward to getting your input on a variety of topics including:

  • Recap/Debrief of the FY 2017 budget session
  • Our asks and strategy for the coming session
  • How to collect impactful stories for our advocacy work
  • Advocacy in the current federal climate
