Wisconsin Legislative Children's Caucus

The Wisconsin Legislative Children’s Caucus was founded in 2015 to create a sustainable forum to educate legislators and build bipartisan support for advancing promising, evidence-informed public policy that improves the life of every Wisconsin child, from the prenatal stages through age 18.

The Children’s Caucus is co-chaired by Representative Joan Ballweg, Representative Jill Billings, Senator Alberta Darling, and Senator LaTonya Johnson.

The Prevention Board provides administrative support for the Children’s Caucus.
