The Restore Opportunities Now (RON) Campaign is going around the State
doing outreach to not for profits to help in our advocacy efforts to raise
funding for the human services sector. Last year, the campaign dramatically
raised the visibility of this issue. This year we hope to do even more and
get not for profits across the State to sign on and raise your voices in
support of funding increases. The tour schedule for the campaign is
attached. We urge you to sign on and join the campaign.

Restore Opportunity Now is a statewide coalition of more than 340 human
services nonprofit providers, calling on the State to make key investments
in our workforce and contracts to ensure that our quality services can
continue to lift up the communities we serve. The Campaign launched last
year and this summer we will be going around the State to engage more
nonprofits in the conversation. Whether you are an active coalition member,
looking to get more involved, or new to the discussion, we invite you to
join us at one of our local meetings. Please see the attached flyer for the
current dates and locations, and we will share updated information as we
confirm more locations. Please also share this with your networks.

We look forward to getting your input on a variety of topics including:

· Recap/Debrief of the FY 2017 budget session

· Our asks and strategy for the coming session

· How to collect impactful stories for our advocacy work

· Advocacy in the current federal climate
