Yesterday, Myra Jones-Taylor inspired and challenged a room full of dedicated children’s advocates to “make good on the promise of our field” at our 2019 Annual Luncheon. You could have heard a pin drop as we hung on every word.

“Collectively, we can be one of the most potent and transformative agents against injustice in this country,” she said. “Each early childhood professional and advocate has the potential to prevent one more child from growing up in poverty or becoming a victim of racism and inequality.”

As we listened to Gov. Jared Polis, highlighted our policy wins and celebrated our collective successes with our partners, we were reminded that there is more work to be done. We thank everyone who was able to attend the luncheon yesterday, as well as ALL of the incredible children’s advocates who stand shoulder-to-shoulder with us every day as we work to improve the health and well-being of children by removing barriers for those who face the most.
