Advocacy for Children Day 2020 CANCELLED
Join hundreds of early childhood learning advocates, parents, and children from across the state on March 26, as they stand up and encourage legislators to support Minnesota’s youngest and most vulnerable children at Advocacy for Children Day. Advocates will remind lawmakers that high quality early childhood care and education is the best way to close one of the worst in the nation opportunity gaps.
Over 35,000 children in the state of Minnesota still don’t have access to quality early care and education. This day is an opportunity for parents, teachers, early care and education professionals, and others from across the state to stand up and raise their voices for children, and to make sure early childhood care and education is a priority in policy discussions and legislation.
Attendees are also encouraged to set up a meeting with their legislator(s) before or after the rally.
Please help us bring the voices of our children to the Capitol that day by participating in our art project. We’re attaching a fun coloring page for children to share their big dreams for the future. This is a great project, even for those that cannot attend the rally. 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:
