NATIONAL News Update
In time for the USCCB meeting last weekend, VOTF sent a letter to all US bishops
along with a CD comprised of the Structural Change Working Group’s excellent
work. Most of these materials are already available on the national VOTF
website. (We will soon update this
page to include all the materials on the CD.) The mailing included our revised
membership brochure. (The brochure is available on our website).
If VOTF members would like copies of the CD or brochure please contact Angela
Hope at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the office at 617-558-5252.
The Legislative Accountability Advisors (LAA) consists of VOTF members with
experience in legislative efforts and the Financial Accountability
Advisors (FAA) consists of financial experts. Both of these advisory groups have dedicated
themselves to the following:
- To provide resources and “on-call” support that will bolster
affiliates’ campaign efforts
- To share campaign successes and lessons learned with other involved
- To make suggestions for how to revise the campaign plans as new information
If you need help or advice with regard to a legislative campaign,
please contact a Protect Our Children
Campaign Leader in your state.
