Thank you all for being willing to participate in what was “Advocacy Day” and has turned into “Advocacy Week!” There was so much follow up to prepare from this morning’s meeting, that it took
our team longer to pull it together than we had hoped.
If you weren’t able to join us for the video conference this morning, you can click here to access the video and audio files of today’s event and you can click here to read the list of questions and answers that were generated. This list of questions will be updated as answers become available.
As for “Advocacy Day/Week,” the most important thing you can do today is to share your story, your needs, and your ideas. We will send these stories to our federal and state delegations. You can sign up for the Early Childhood Alliance email list if you’d like to be notified of these events in the future.
Ad speaking of the future, join our upcoming virtual events:
3/26 at 9:30 am: we will host a Zoom webinar on Unemployment Law with lawyers from the State Department of Labor
3/27 at 9:30 am: Advocacy Zoom Video call: this is a running 3 times per week check in call for anyone wanting to work on early childhood advocacy during the crisis. It will be every M, W, F at 9:30 am for the time being.
3/31 at 9:30 am: we will host a Zoom webinar on Small Business Association Loans: Join us for an explanation of the Small Business Administration's Economic Injury Loan Program. Businesses and Nonprofits are eligible. Loans will be made through traditional banks with the federal government providing a 100% guarantee and a very streamlined process. We hope by Tuesday to have information about the additional support in the Covid 19 response package working its way through Congress.
