Background / General Information

The Children's Advocates Roundtable, established in 1990, is an affiliation of statewide and local children's policy organizations, representing over twenty issue disciplines (e.g., child abuse prevention, child care, education, poverty, housing, juvenile justice). The Roundtable is convened quarterly by the Children's Advocacy Institute, and is committed to providing a setting where advocates gather to share resources and information and strategize on behalf of children; an opportunity to educate each other about the variety of issues and legislation that affect children and youth — facilitating prioritization of issues and minimizing infighting over limited state resources historically budgeted for children's programs; an opportunity to collaborate on joint projects that promote the interests of children and families; and a setting to foster a children's political movement, committed to ensuring that every child in California is economically secure, gets a good education, has access to health care, and lives in a safe environment.

The Children's Advocates Roundtable meets quarterly. The date of the next full Roundtable is February 27, 2020, from 12:00-3:00 pm at the California Endowment, 1414 K Street, Suite 500, Sacramento CA. [agenda to be posted closer to date]

Each Roundtable consists of:

  • A detailed discussion of an emerging area of significance for children's advocates. This is a great opportunity for Roundtable member organizations to inform and educate others about new issues of importance!  If your organization is interested in suggesting topics for discussion at a future Roundtable, please contact Melanie Delgado at (619) 260-4806.
  • A discussion of timely matters important to all children's advocates, such as the budget, elections, or "inside the horseshoe" information.
  • An opportunity for Roundtable members to briefly discuss their legislative and advocacy priorities, and seek support and assistance from other members.

CAI provides a call-in option for Roundtable members unable to attend in person (see agenda for info).

For more information on the Roundtable, or to sign up for our email list, please contact Melanie Delgado at (619) 260-4806.
