Join Children’s Action Alliance and our community partners for a community forum on early childhood education and poverty this week in Tucson. Everyone is welcome to attend this town hall discussion, as well as join elected officials in meaningful Q and A on these important issues.
WHERE: YWCA 525 Bonita Avenue, Tucson, AZ
WHEN: Thursday, December 3
6 pm – 8 pm (space is limited, please arrive by 5:30 pm)
WHO: Elected officials, including state legislators, city council members and mayor of Tucson.
Scientific research has found a child's brain develops most rapidly before the age of 5 and poverty can have a profound and life-altering effect on young children.
Other issues affecting struggling families with young children:
- The cost of child care, which can take up half or more of a family's budget, particularly if there is more than one young child in the household.
- Lack of affordable child care can put families in dangerous situations, where a young family member is forced to care for younger siblings while parents work or be left alone to care for themselves.
- About one-third of the children who enter kindergarten in Arizona do not have the fundamental skills necessary to succeed in school; by grade 4, many are still behind.
The event will be held town hall style.
Children’s Action Alliance is an independent voice for Arizona children at the state capitol and in the community. CAA works to improve children’s health, education, and security through information and action.
