While we all could use a break this Memorial Day weekend, now cannot be the time to sit back. Please try to reach your legislators this weekend while they are home.
What you need to do this weekend. . .
Find your legislators. Tell them why early childhood is critical to the future of their communities and the State. Remind them of this quote by Dr. Jack Shonkoff: “When we fail to provide children with what they need to build a strong foundation for healthy and productive lives, we put our future prosperity and security at risk.”
It is a critical time for them to hear about the need to protect programs for young children. If you can’t find them this weekend, send an email, fax or voice message so they hear our voices and remember the children next week.
If you do talk to your legislators, please share what you heard in the comments section on this site.
