At Groundwork Ohio, advocacy isn't just a mission; it's a commitment to empowering the voices that matter most—those of Ohio's parents and families. As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure that families have a seat at the table in decisions affecting their children's futures, we're thrilled to introduce the Family Voice Workbook, a powerful tool designed to amplify the voices of families across the state.

Developed as a companion to the "Amplifying Family Voice to Advance Equitable Outcomes for Young Children" report, the Family Voice Workbook is a comprehensive guide for community-based organizations and leaders. Drawing from Groundwork's extensive research and experience, this workbook invites users to embark on a similar journey of authentic family engagement in their mission-driven work, particularly focused on early childhood advocacy.
