We’re Empowering Virginians to Be the Voice for Kids

 Virginians 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.

Virginia In the News

Child care is critical for working parents

In November, Virginia voters have the chance to prioritize children and families by voting for candidates who also prioritize them — particularly those who support quality and affordable child care for all Virginia families by 2030.

Invest in future, prioritize child care

As the Virginia gubernatorial race kicks into high gear, voters have their eye out for updates from the candidates on campaign events and what their platforms will look like for the coming year. As the mother of two young children, I’m looking for candidates who prioritize children.
