We’re Empowering South Carolinans to Be the Voice for Kids

 South Carolinans overwhelmingly support investing in our kids, and especially early education.

This is key because research shows the first five years of children’s lives are critically important for their development. We’re committed to ensuring all children succeed in school and life.
