Gearing Up for 2019 Advocacy

This week, Groundwork Ohio joined the Franklin County Human Service Chamber at Action for Children's Post-Election Gathering to facilitate an election debrief and advocacy training for local child care providers. We were humbled by their passion for the children they serve and their dedication to providing the highest quality of care every single day. Throughout the coming months, we look forward to equipping more passionate parents, providers, and stakeholders with the tools they need to become effective advocates.

Are YOU interested in advocating for Ohio kids? Save the date! On May 8, 2019 early childhood stakeholders from across the state will come together in Columbus to bring awareness to the importance of investments in early childhood education and communicate this important information to our legislators. We need your help to make sure the importance of early education issues rings loud and clear!

Implicit bias can affect our ability to equitably serve kids from all backgrounds. The Kirwin Institute at Ohio State University is offering a FREE online implicit bias training. Each module is divided into a short series of lessons, many taking less than 10 minutes to complete. Thanks to the Home Visiting team at the Ohio Department of Health for passing this opportunity along!
