Citywide Change Starts with Early Childhood Education

Mar 7, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

This session is part of the special 2024 Crossover Day. Attendance is open to all SXSW EDU badgeholders as well as all SXSW badgeholders. As always, SXSW strongly believes in the power of mixing creative communities.

Why focus on early childhood education? And why is that not enough? Hear how leaders 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.
