The COFI Way: Policy & Systems Change

The COFI Way: Policy & Systems Change report cover

The COFI Way is generating a fresh look at how COFI-trained parents are becoming effective, innovative partners in policy-making on the issues that affect their families every single day.

Packed with real-life stories and perspectives from parents raising families in some of the toughest communities anywhere, and based on interviews with prominent policymakers who got to know the parents at decision-making tables, the report is creating great interest among  policymakers, public officials, community and advocacy organizations, and foundations.

The Annie E. Casey Foundation blog states: “The report… details how low-income moms and grandmothers of color have used COFI’s collaborative organizing model to influence policymakers and elected officials to strengthen public policy that affects their families.”
