About the event

Supporting grandparent and kinship families comes in many forms, including legislative changes, financial support, and department process updates.  The Arizona Grandparent Ambassadors (AZGA) have firsthand knowledge of the struggles that grandparents and relative caregivers face.  We invite you to join us for our annual day of advocacy at the Arizona State Capitol. We're going virtual this year!  This means that your advocacy day's timing will be flexible. 

Pre-Session Advocacy Trainings

Learn how to tell your story to lawmakers and policymakers to best advocate for your family and the children in your care. We'll give you the training and the tools you need to feel comfortable. Your story is powerful! It needs to be told!  

The same training will be offered twice prior to our "Day" at the Capitol. You only need to attend one training - pick one that works for you:
