Policy & Advocacy

We help lead a coalition of advocates fighting for increased state investments in early childhood programs and services. Our policy recommendations are research-based and centered on the lived experiences of families and educators.

Advocate for Young Kids

Oregon’s Early Childhood Coalition includes more than 40 state and national organizations that work to advocate for young children and families. Children’s Institute serves as a coordinating member of the coalition and offers facilitation support.

Our partnership has made a difference: The historic passage of the Student Success Act and the newly created Early Learning Account demonstrates Oregon’s commitment to improving the early care and education of young children and their families.

Now, we must work closely to ensure that Oregon holds fast to those commitments through the health and economic challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. We invite you to join us, by learning more about our collective goals, sharing our message with your networks, and working with us to remind lawmakers why early childhood matters!

Advocate for Young Kids

If you support investments in early childhood programs and services, your state lawmakers need to hear from you! We’ll let you know when bills important to young kids are moving through the legislature and help you quickly and easily contact your lawmakers to voice your support. We don’t currently have any action opportunities. You can use the button below to sign up for our updates so you never miss an opportunity to speak up for Oregon’s kids!
