NAEYC’s Public Policy Forum
Advocacy begins with YOU and YOU are needed!
Join the collective, connected movement to support equitable access to high-quality early childhood education by registering for NAEYC’s 2023 Public Policy Forum. This event is designed to bring VAAEYC members powerful voices to Washington, DC to fight for investments that support the education and compensation of early childhood educators, and increase families’ access to affordable, high-quality child care and early learning.
VAAEYC created an Electoral Toolkit to help members make informed decisions and advocate for children and early childhood education as they headed to the polls in November. This will be updated for the next election cycle, but has good information now to get you started thinking!
