Everything Matters for Babies
The BUILD Initiative and ZERO TO THREE hosted the Everything Matters for Babies meeting September 22–24, 2014, to support states in developing and moving an infant–toddler policy agenda and to renew commitment to a national agenda for babies.
Sixty-two participants, including representatives from the public and private sectors in six states (California, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Oregon, and Vermont) as well as resource people from several national organizations (the BUILD Initiative, ZERO TO THREE, the Center for Law and Social Policy, the National Governors Association, and the Ounce of Prevention) and funders (Alliance for Early Success and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation), came together in Chicago to discuss the pressing policy concerns for infants and toddlers.
