Influencing Legislation--Advocacy Basics
Pillow-Price, Kathy L.
Dimensions of Early Childhood, v37 n3 p18-23 Fall 2009
Early educators aim to provide high-quality services for children and families. Those services are often helped or harmed by the nature of the political climate at any moment. Currently, there are many critical issues affecting the field at both the state and national levels. The power of early childhood's collective voices and the desire to make a difference can lead to change. Professionals can talk with government officials about their concerns and hopes for America's children and families. So much of what needs to be accomplished hinges on political decisions. This article reviews how to be an informed advocate. It offers some advocacy resources and lists a few early childhood organizations that have helpful advocacy information, tools, and tips. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
