Citywide Change Starts with Early Childhood Education

Why focus on early childhood education? And why is that not enough? Hear how leaders in Oakland are working to advance equity and economic mobility through education, how folks in Tulsa are ensuring every child born there is healthy and thriving, and how a coalition in Dallas is working together to cut child poverty rates in half in a single generation. As you’ll learn from this panel, these strategies can be applied to any cause in any place. Attendees will leave with ideas for enacting change in their own communities, starting with our youngest learners.
