My good friend, Erin from both Lullaby Organics and Green Kids Guide, recently shared that she is testifying today before the Washington State House Environment Committee regarding pending legislation to reduce children’s exposure to unnecessary toxic chemicals.
If you live in Washington State, learn more and take action letting your legislators know how you feel about the Toxic-Free Kids Act!
You can learn more about her previous experience testifying on her blog for Lullaby Organics. Those of us that blog for the purpose of bringing research, resources, and awareness to readers and ourselves, to inspire us all to take action, and even to , the biggest question we often find ourselves asking is, How can we get more parents involved in advocacy for children’s health and the health of their world?
But today Erin also asks the question for us all,”Why is advocacy important to you?”
My answer: Because if I don’t, then how can I expect others to advocate for the difficult issues that are important to me? What is most important to me is the health of our children and their world. I speak of it often and this is the where most of Almost All The Truth is directed toward.
What would your answer be? Why is advocacy important to you, and if you wish, how to do you advocate for the issues most important to you?
If you believe in advocacy: tweet, Facebook, or pin your support!
