NEWS: SCAN’s Advocacy Day a Success, Offering Resources for the Year Ahead

December 29, 2014

In late November, SCAN hosted its 3rd Annual Advocacy Training through a partnership with Prevent Child Abuse Virginia. With guests from Virginia Poverty Law Center, Commonwealth Institute, Voices for Adoption and Youth for Tomorrow — as well as six local legislators including SCAN Honorary Board Member Sen. Barbara Favola — the event provided valuable training and insight for more than 50 attendees ahead of the 2015 legislative session. A complete recap of the day on social media is available here via Storify, including links to SCAN’s blog Connections and the article published on Patch.com, “5 Tips to Advocate for Children in Virginia.”
