[Defending the Cause Regional Alliance]

One of the greatest gifts in life is the support of a loving family. Kids thrive when parents consistently build up their worth and identity while encouraging them to dream big dreams! We currently live in a culture where families are struggling leaving a growing number of kids without positive role models.

This is an interactive, high-energy, family-friendly event for the entire community where people can learn about the issues affecting kids and families in the Sacramento region and connect directly with organizations to serve with or support. 

This FREE event includes:
- 3D videos and powerful speakers on our main stage
- A vendor fair with 20+ local non-profits, agencies, & ministries
- Music from K-LOVE/Air1
- A unique simulation where you can step into the shoes of a child just entering foster care
- A photo gallery with pictures of kids recently adopted out of foster care in Sacramento County
- Door prizes and raffles
- Food trucks with treats for purchase
- And so much more! 

This event will feature a photo display of former foster youth from the Sacramento Heart Gallery and a large vendor fair with over 25 local non-profits, agencies and ministries looking for volunteers and families interested in wrapping around kids in need!

Defending the Cause Regional Alliance is excited to partner with Student Reach, K-LOVE/Air1 Radio, Sacramento Heart Gallery and William Jessup University to kick off our first annual Members Expo: Standing Up for Kids & Families!
