'Invite your legislator back to school' advocacy effort announced

First Up is encouraging early childhood education centers to get a head start on fall by inviting their legislators to Back To School Night!


It’s important! ECE staff and parents are the experts they need to hear from on the importance of early childhood education.They love being out and about—and feeling partof the lives of young children—and when they see ECE in real life, it’s easier for them to fight for increased funding.

It’s a great opportunity to get some publicity for your program.Once you have built the relationship, it’s easier to call on them when action is needed. You are proibably already planning an event, so it’s a perfect time to just fold them in.
