Children’s Action Alliance — Children need more than masks to protect their futures

Children’s Action Alliance — Children need more than masks to protect their futures

This past year has been unimaginable for many Arizona families. With shelter-in-place mandates, homes became classrooms, gyms, offices, and the only hub for social connections. And for children who do not have the resources for remote learning, nutritional meals to stay healthy, and affordable health care during the coronavirus crisis, this past year has been a never-ending nightmare. The pandemic has had a devastating impact on children and families, especially for foster youth and kinship families who were at the brink prior to the health crisis and economic downturn.       

With fewer positive COVID cases and with more people getting vaccinated, it feels like things are starting to pivot to normalcy. But returning to normal will not be enough. Advocating for children’s futures is more important now than ever before. This Arizona Gives Day on Tuesday, April 6, plan to invest in children’s futures with a donation to the state’s only child advocacy organization that keeps elected officials accountable before, during and after legislative session.

Connections Spotlight — New look, sharpened focus coming to Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth

We are excited to announce that NAU’s Visual Design Lab students helped us redesign our logo in preparation of our 50th anniversary next year.

The colors and design fit in the the CCC&Y ‘s Mission Statement (We ignite collective action that creates better lives for children and families) and our Purpose Statement (We imagine a world where every person lives in peace and is supported by a thriving, resilient community).

Teal combines the calming properties of blue with the renewal qualities of green. It is a revitalizing and rejuvenating color that also represents open communication and clarity of thought.

Turquoise {or teal} helps to open the lines of communication between the heart and the spoken word. It presents as a friendly and happy color enjoying life. In color psychology, the color turquoise controls and heals the emotions creating emotional balance and stability.
Look for more changes to appear on CCC&Y ‘s website, weekly newsletter and other marketing materials in the coming weeks.

As part of those changes, please take advantage of the following new membership options:

Children’s Action Alliance — State Lawmakers Should Expand KidsCare Eligibility ASAP

Children’s Action Alliance — State Lawmakers Should Expand KidsCare Eligibility ASAP

A year into a pandemic that has claimed the lives of more than 16,000 Arizonans, the state legislature has repeatedly declined the opportunity to provide low-cost, comprehensive health coverage to tens of thousands of children. CAA’s new fact sheet explores why this measure is so important – and how many children would benefit.  

In 2019, Arizona ranked 48th in the US for the rate of children’s health coverage. Latinx, American Indian, and Asian/Pacific Islander children are more likely to be uninsured than their peers of other races and ethnicities, and coverage gains for children of color facilitated by the Affordable Care Act have been eroded significantly over the past four years.

Connections Spotlight — Disinvestments in early education are hurting children and families

Now a full year into the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, education at all levels has been impacted; in some ways, it’s forever changed. And the students who are most likely to face the longest-term effects are also the youngest.

In recently updated data, the Arizona Education Progress Meter showed a decline of 3% in Quality Early Learning over the past two years. Enrollment in quality early learning among Arizona 3- and 4-year-olds now stands at 19%, down from 22% two years ago. Arizona must take quick action to reverse this decrease and ensure all children have a strong start to their education, which is foundational to their future success and Arizona’s ability to meet the goals in the Education Progress Meter.
