Your Voice Counts for Kids

CJ and DadWhat is Children First/CIS Advocacy? It is inspiring community action to build opportunity for children.

Laws, budgets, and regulations passed by our U.S. Congress, NC State Legislature, Buncombe County Commissioners, Asheville City Council, and local school boards impact the health, education, and safety of children everyday. By speaking up, we can make investments in children and youth the top priority for elected leaders.

Children First/CIS works to build a strong, local advocacy voice for our children, youth, and their families. When our leaders create policies that are good for children, it leads to better health, education, and safety for our whole community. Will you help us educate and inspire our leaders to put children first?
