Join families and young people across New York State for a month of virtual advocacy about topics and issues that are important to you! Families Together in New York State will be hosting a variety of Zoom townhalls throughout the month of February. Town Halls are a chance for families and youth to share their perspectives with state commissioners and legislators.

Families Together will open with a general session where we will meet with our members, discuss our policy priorities, recognize prestigious awardees, and host a workshop for how to effectively participate in the town halls.

    • Network with other families and young people with lived experience.
    • Hear powerful speakers and awardees.
    • Learn how to affectively engage with legislators and government officials.
    • Learn about important policy issues and get involved!
    • Discover how you can make a difference in your community!

See the town hall dates below. Register today to receive townhall updates and meeting links as soon as they are available!
