Become an Advocate

Become the active, engaged, and informed early learning advocate that you want to be!

The earliest years of a child’s life are a crucial time for learning—and right now is a crucial time for us to advocate for the future of our children, families and economy.

We need you - educators, parents, partners, and allies - to raise a powerful, collective voice to demand that our nation's policies catch up with the science about the importance of brain development, and the benefits of investing in high-quality early learning built with educators who are skilled, supported, and compensated for the complex and demanding jobs they perform.

Political will for early childhood investment is growing across the nation, but it needs our voices, together, right now, to create a movement. Check out the resources we have compiled to help you become the early learning advocate that you want to be!
