Advocacy for Children Day Recap

Minnesota State Capitol Building in Saint Paul

For over 20 years, hundreds of young children, parents, early childhood professionals, and advocates from across the state have come together to ask legislators to prioritize Minnesota’s youngest children. This year, Advocacy for Children Day was back in-person at the State Capitol to urge policymakers to go “All In For Our Kids!”

Over 35,000 children in the state of Minnesota don’t have access to affordable quality early care, education, and other supports. This day was an opportunity to advocate for children and to make sure their care and education are prioritized in policy discussions and legislation this session.

Child Care Aware of Minnesota was an organizer of this year’s event and invited advocates and system staff to attend. Thank you to everyone who attended this year to support children, families, and early childhood education in Minnesota.
