Advocate

Prevent Child Abuse Oregon Advocates for polices, legislation, and programs that promote healthy child development and prevent child abuse and neglect from occurring in the first place. Investing in healthy child development reduces the likelihood of a significant array of costly conditions, including chronic health problems, premature mortality, lowered educational achievement, lost productivity, mental illness, violent crime, substance abuse and addiction, and the perpetuation of abuse and neglect.

There are ways to advocate year-round, but right now in Oregon you have the chance to advocate during the 2019 Legislative Session. Join PCAO in supporting the United for Kids and Early Childhood Coalition Agenda’s. You can share these agenda’s with your elected officials and let them know you support investments in keeping kids healthy and safe in their families.
