Coordinating nationwide field visits with policymakers
NFYI coordinates field visits throughout the country to help policymakers learn more about issues related to foster care firsthand. By bringing Congressmembers and their staff to various districts for a series of site visits, town hall meetings, and roundtables, NFYI increases awareness of what’s going on with child welfare throughout the country. This helps Congressmembers to better understand the issues and how to address them at both the local and federal levels. Recently Listening Tours have been held in Chicago, Los Angeles, Baltimore and rural Tennessee.
