Enjoy coffee and a conversation with Tamika Edwards, Director of Government Affairs at Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families (AACF). During our conversation, we'll discuss how we can be advocates for children and families in our state, use facts to positively transform communities, and ride the wave of political debate during the current legislative session. Let us know what questions you have on Facebook or Twitter by Friday, January 20–and be sure to use #CWE so we can find what you have to say.
