Advocacy Challenge Day 5: Celebrating Early Childhood Advocates

Whether you’re a parent, family member, early childhood professional, community leader, business owner, or advocate, your voice and your story matter. For the final day of our 5-day virtual advocacy challenge, we are celebrating the early childhood advocates who helped make this week's advocacy challenge a success.

Here's what you told us about why you're an early childhood advocate:

Thanks to the participation of committed early childhood advocates like you, we sent nearly 200 messages to Ohio policymakers letting them know that investment in infants, young children, and their families must be a priority in the state budget.

Ready to take your early childhood advocacy to the next level? Check out our resources below to get started and help us make this moment a movement.
