Giving children a voice...by speaking for them.
That's the goal of a dozen regional forums recently held across Ohio.
One of those forums was held Friday at Washington State Community College.
They're intended to explain the economic effects on children of recent state and federal changes in health care.
And poverty is a bigger issue in our area today than it was just a few years ago.
The forum was attended by two area lawmakers, who also spoke about the role of the State of Ohio in improving kids' quality of life.
