Advocacy Series

Print

CRC’s most recent education series included a partnership with YWCA of NE Kansas for an innovative & exciting event. The Advocacy Series consisted of three half day events which featured knowledgeable educators, advocacy basics, and specialized government information. These were held on November 2nd, 8th, and 17th, 2016. The series was very successful and CRC has plans to repeat the event in Summer of 2017.
