Alliance Public Policy Office
The Alliance for Children and Families’ public policy efforts are directed out of its office in Washington, D.C. The work of the Alliance Public Policy Office is carried out in collaboration with United Neighborhood Centers of America (UNCA).
Work is guided by the Alliance and UNCA’s public policy agenda, created by the Public Policy committee comprised of Alliance and UNCA member organizations.
The Public Policy office connects members to advocacy opportunities and helps them engage in federal policy discussions. Through the Alliance and UNCA, members’ voices are elevated to the national level. The Public Policy Office also works to communicate and share information on federal policy changes that may impact member organizations.
