The Early Learning Action Alliance invites you to make some noise for the little ones at our first Early Learning Advocacy Day! Join us to Think Babies, stroll the capitol, and advocate for early learning resources for children and families in Washington. We invite you learn about advocacy, take a deep dive on issues such as prenatal services, home visiting, ECEAP, and child care, and rally on the steps!
