Because small lives get bigger
WECA calls for greater public investment in early childhood education. We ask you to join us.
Our advocates are diverse. Perhaps you work with young children. Maybe you're a parent. Or both. Or neither. To be a successful advocate you just need to care about young children and know how public policy impacts their lives and potential.
Your voice, joined with many others, can help keep the needs of young children well-understood and appropriately funded. Our collective impact is greater as a result.
