Many states are involving parent leaders in their agencies and communities in successful, state-based, parent-led and parent-run organizing models. However, both parents and practitioners often grapple with issues such as providing the skills and training needed to ensure ethical and appropriate political action, and community and agency involvement. This webinar discusses issues surrounding these topics, along with organizing parents in grassroots policy change efforts. One state, Kentucky, talks about the challenges they have faced and the solutions they are currently working through to prepare parents in their leadership roles.
