Early childhood lays a foundation for the future. As a community, we must commit to investing our resources and attention to the critical years of birth to age 5 to ensure children are prepared for success in school and life. Children cannot advocate for themselves, and as a result, their needs are often not addressed in public policy. Durham’s children need you to be their voice! Stay informed on the issues and connect to what’s happening at the NC State Legislature so that you can take action when critical issues arise. Speak up about the importance of a child’s early years, and let everyone know that investing in early childhood is the best investment we can make.
As a community, we must commit to investing our resources and attention in the critical first five years to ensure children are prepared for success in school and life. Please become an advocate and a champion for young children today! If you have any Advocacy questions or resources to aid in this cause contact Katie Starr or Kayla Godbee.
