​Every Child Matters in Iowa and the Child and Family Policy Center will co-sponsor the Step Up for Kids Day, which aims to bring together Iowans to show widespread public support for kids and working families. We will have fall activities such as crafts, snacks, and a life size Chutes and Ladders game for families to participate. We will call upon the Administration, Congress, state legislatures, governors, mayors, and local officials to make our nation’s children a top priority - through a station where people can write down the issues they care about and display them in a large visual banner. Additionally, we will have a photo booth and video station where families can express their desires that can be shared on social media. This is a family friendly, open to the public, open to the media and elected officials, and non-partisan event. This event will last approximately 2 hours
