Action of the Month-April
No one knows WIC better than WIC Staff. Your WIC voice is incredibly valuable and can help educate policy makers on the importance of WIC. Each month, we are going to highlight an easy advocacy action item for you to elevate your WIC voice.
Review the WIC Advocacy Toolkit on the National WIC Association’s website, available here. NWA has put together a number of resources, talking points, and fact sheets that will help you reach out and educate others on the benefits of the WIC program.
NWA Immigration Updates
The Wisconsin WIC Association is following updates provided by the NWA regarding immigration and WIC participation. Numerous accounts have been shared regarding immigrant families being afraid to seek services that they or their U.S. citizen children need and disenrolling from critical programs and how changes affect individuals, families, communities and community-based organizations. In order to continue to advocate for our Wisconsin WIC families and immigrant families, please share with us what you are hearing. Email any accounts you may have from immigrant families to WWA Chair Angela Roltgen
