Welcome to CD 479: Policy Analysis & Advocacy’s blog. CD 479 is the senior capstone course in Humboldt State University’s Child Development Department that gives students the skills to change the world!
Well, that’s a bit extreme, but it is the goal. By the end of this class, students should have some idea about how to take their vision of how the world should be, join with others with a similar vision, and start making change. Granted, working with children and families can cause powerful, world-shaking change. But by using the power of advocacy, we can widen the circle of influence. We welcome others committed to children and families to visit our blog and follow our progress in making the world a better place for children and families.
