National Advocacy Days

May 13, 2021

Youth advocates met with Representative Andy Kim during National Advocacy Days, March 16-18, 2021. As part of the event, 11 students participated in training and workshops where they learned how to be effective advocates and better cause-driven leaders. Students met with various legislators, and chiefs of staff, to champion YMCA priorities that resonated with their communities. This first-hand experience led to active legislation being co-signed by Senator Troy Singleton.
