2017 Early Child Legislative Day at the State Capitol to be held Feb. 13

| January 9, 2017

By First Things First

Please mark your calendars for Early Childhood Legislative Day which has been scheduled for February 13, 2017.

This voluntary event will be an opportunity for members of the early childhood community and those who believe in the importance of supporting families with young children, to engage with state policymakers on why early childhood matters.

It is important for Policymakers to hear from early childhood champions to better understand how supporting the health and learning of our youngest children has a direct impact on Arizona communities now and in the future.

Hearing directly from constituents is a powerful way to let Policymakers know that you want them to consider the impacts on young children and their families in every decision they make because they stand as your representatives.

Your voice is important, and needed to build awareness of the importance of early childhood.

This event will be held at the State Capitol and is open to all who wish to attend.  Events will include (times are approximate, and you do not need to be present for all events):

  • 7:30am – breakfast, discussion of points to cover during visits and assigning of teams for policymaker visits
  • 9am-11am/1pm-4pm – legislative office visits
  • 11:30am-1pm – lunch on the House lawn, early childhood partner information and education tables and guest speakers.
  • 2pm – view a House or Senate committee in action

Thank you in advance, for making time in your schedule, to participate in this very important day on behalf of the children you serve, care for and know in your communities.
