Legislative Report – End of Third Quarter
Update for the C4HF Director
Dear Advocates –
As we enter the 4th Quarter of the 2019 Indiana General Assembly, I just wanted to let you know that we have a new C4HF Advisory Board, Haley Compston. Haley is a Junior at Purdue and is majoring in Communication. An interesting fact about Haley when she was 16 she was chosen to represent the City of Indianapolis at the Sister Cities Youth Leadership Summit. Haley has always been interested in government, politics, and writing. She joined the C4HF Advisory Board thinking it would be a great way to be more informed and to do her part for the community while gaining professional experience at the same time.
I also wanted to share with you that we will be losing our student leader, Angela Weaver. Angela will be graduating from Purdue in May and following graduation will be spending the summer in DC and then relocating to Indianapolis in August. When asked about her experience as the Klinker-Alting Family Advocacy Intern, Angela shared “I enjoyed getting to learn about the legislative process and different efforts the Indiana General Assembly is doing to provide for low-income families.” We are grateful to Angela for recruiting new ambassadors as well as advisory board members as well as adding additional content and interest to the newsletter. Under her leadership the quality of the content as well as the reach of the C4HF newsletter has improved. We wish Angela much success in her future career.
We are always looking for volunteer C4HF Advisory Board Members. C4HF volunteers have the opportunity to contribute newsletter articles, engage legislators, build the C4HF listserv, and assist with grassroots mobilization and community outreach activities. As Haley pointed out “it’s great way to be more informed and to make a difference in your community while at the same time gaining professional experience.”
I am grateful to all of you for your interest and support of issues impacting low income families and individuals. Please continue to make your voice heard.
The Rev. Susan Brouillette, Director
