Our Children, Our Future Campaign Hosts Local Workshops to Help Citizens Create Change

Posted: Updated:

The Our Children, Our Future Campaign hosted a workshop Tuesday in Clarksburg at the Gaston Caperton Center.

These workshops bring concerned citizens together to solve problems, and decide what the campaign should focus on during the legislative session.

Organizers said it's important to get citizens involved in policy making.

"The whole purpose of what we are doing is trying to bring to communities and places people live the opportunity to get engaged in policy making and to really get engaged in the decisions that affect everyone's life that are made in Charleston. So we're trying to take the policy conversation out of the state capitol and into communities so that people can understand how they work on this, how they get engaged, and come down to Charleston to make some change,” explained Stephanie Tyree, with the West Virginia Community Development Hub.

Some of the topics the workshop focused on were: workplace bullying, sustained funding for family resource networks, and a healthy food initiative.

Workshops are being held in four different locations throughout this week and next week.

The next ones will be held in Hurricane on July 24, and in Martinsburg on July 29.
