D4CC State Chapters

State Chapters are being developed to assist in the overall goals of our national advocacy network. Local advocacy work is already being done on the state level by many other organizations, so these groups will not duplicate those efforts, but will support as necessary, and provide points of contact for coordinating our national level efforts to ensure they are a success. Please contact us if you are interested in helping to organize a chapter in your state!
