AFAR is excited to invite supporters of Sydney Batch to bring their kids with them to her Fundraising Kickoff event. We believe that role modeling civic participation is an important family value! By including our children we normalize political involvement and introduce them to our community leaders. The mission of AFAR is to make progressive activism and civic engagement accessible to all Raleigh families. We work to elect progressive candidates and encourage citizens to access their elected officials. Kids of all ages are welcome to participate in the “Kids Zone” during this fundraiser. We will have snacks, drinks, games and our little library of liberal children’s books.
