Early Childhood Legislative Briefing
At this event, you’ll have the opportunity to:
- Connect with fellow early childhood leaders, advocates, agencies and law-makers. Together, we’ll explore pathways to close the opportunity gap and foster a strong, equitable future for Minnesota.
- Learn more about early childhood policy priorities and legislative action moving forward this session. We know this is an important legislative session—with a budget surplus and strong bi-partisan commitment to advancing quality early childhood development, care and education.
- Engage in critical discussions around equity and policies focused on improving outcomes for our state’s young children and youth. With a new governor and leadership at the capitol, this year presents an exciting opportunity to address the importance of early childhood development and opportunities to improve successful outcomes.
We also encourage you to spend the day at the capitol, meet with your legislators, and show your support for our state’s youngest children by attending the Advocacy for Children Day rally, hosted at 2 p.m. in the capitol rotunda.
2019 Advocacy for Children Day
Please join United Way and MinneMinds for the 2019 Advocacy for Children Day as hundreds of children, parents, and early childhood advocates come together to have their voices heard!
Together we’ll show our support for investments in high quality, early childhood development for our state’s most vulnerable young children.
