Communications Strategies for Children's Coverage Advocacy During ACA Implementation
- Highlighting the benefits of covering two generations, both children and their parents, and connecting children’s well-being to state economic security can help keep children’s coverage on crowded policy and implementation agendas.
- Children’s advocacy organizations may need to communicate with a range of audiences over the course of a policy’s lifecycle. At times, indirect communications channels may be more effective than direct ones, depending on an advocacy organization’s relationship with its intended audiences.
- Children’s advocacy organizations should strive to be fact-based and solution-focused and share their expertise with stakeholders.
