2021 Advocacy for Children Day Virtual Rally
Your Story. Our Children. Minnesota’s Future.
2021 Advocacy for Children Day Virtual Rally!
For over 20 years, hundreds of young children, parents, educators and advocates from across the state have come together to ask legislators to support Minnesota’s youngest and most vulnerable children.
Attendees are also encouraged to set up virtual meetings with their legislator(s).
Please help us share the voices of our children with legislators by participating in our art project. We’re attaching a fun coloring page for children to share their big dreams for the future. Send in your artwork and letters so legislators can hear your voices, learn your stories and understand the importance of early childhood investments in your community!
Each kit includes instructions, parent letter, provider letter, and coloring page:
Over 35,000 children in the state of Minnesota still don’t have access to quality early care, education, and other supports.
This rally is an opportunity to speak up, for and with children to make sure their care and education are prioritized in policy discussions and legislation this session.
This event was hosted in partnership:
