An organization that advocates for children invited political candidates to get to know them a little better.

Kansas Children's Service League's "Healthy Families" program used its regular meeting to introduce participants to the governing process. Several people running for office turned out to learn about the program and allow parents to ask questions about the issues.

KCSL President and CEO Janet Schlansky says the Healthy Families program teaches people how to be better parents and part of that is utilizing resources and advocating for their children's needs. She says meeting candidates and registering to vote - which parents could also do - is all part of that advocacy process.

The Healthy Families program is funded by the United Way and through local and federal grants.
