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

Letter: Time running out for 2023 Farm Bill

I recently returned from Washington, D.C., where I was joined by nearly 200 fellow advocates to attend Save the Children Action Network’s annual Advocacy Summit.  After such a long and difficult period — especially for kids and families — it was inspiring to be surrounded by such dedicated change-makers.

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.
