ECFC is honored to be among nearly 1,500 organizations singing on to An Open Letter to the Nation on Behalf of Infants and Toddlers, a project of the The National Collaborative for Infants & Toddlers (NCIT). The initiative is intended to highlight shared values and principles regarding the importance of investing in prenatal-to-three priorities that young children and their families need to thrive, and calls for bold leadership around these core principles:
- Economic Security for All
- High-Quality, Affordable Child Care
- Comprehensive Family Supports
- Maternal and Child Health
- Equitable Policy Implementation
As of March 1, 2022, the letter has garnered support from nearly 1,500 organizations and all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, underpinning a movement for strong and sustained public investment in prenatal-to-three.
