Through old-fashioned people power, the Our Children Our Future Campaign has worked with thousands of West Virginia families, community groups, unions, churches, and other partners to win 28 statewide policy victories. Together, we have raised the minimum wage, expanded school breakfast by 5.2 million meals per year, saved child care benefits for 12,000 kids, modernized our state's child abuse prevention system, and expanded Medicaid to 182,000 families.

But we must do more. Join us at our annual People's Policy Summit on September 18th, where you will:

* Learn about 24+ new policy campaigns (including Black Lung Pension Fund, PEIA, and a statewide Substance Abuse Law).

* Get trained on how to host a Candidate Forum in your County this Fall.

* Help create a statewide VOTER GUIDE.

* Witness strategy sessions around Raisin the Voices of Poor People, Tackling the Opioid Crisis, and How to Organize a Strike.  

Register now! Better yet, bring a school group or other large delegation. Register now!
