We’re Empowering Tennesseans to Be the Voice for Kids
Tennesseans 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.
The Tennessee state budget approved by lawmakers last night includes an additional $1 million in funding this year for voluntary home visiting programs.
A Nashville high school student will be among the hundreds of students advocating for Washington D.C. lawmakers to invest in kids.
We need to make sure Congress continues to prioritize the needs of our littlest learners by prioritizing their access to child care while their parents work. Send a message to your members of Congress today – prioritize kids as we address the coronavirus pandemic!
