About Voices and Choices for Children Coalition:

Founded in 2014 to bring more voices of people of color and American Indians into policy and decision making spaces. Our vision is for a state in which we have parents, advocates and leaders of color and American Indians enabled to exercise their collective power to promote their own solutions, visions and values for society based on increasing more equitable outcomes for their children and communities.
