Engaging Families in Advocacy: Strategies, Practices, and Lessons from the Field
Families have tremendous knowledge about the issues facing communities and the policy changes needed for young children to thrive. But their voices are often not included where policy and advocacy agendas are set.
This webinar explored how to equitably lift up families’ voices, especially those families most often not heard. Panelists discussed the values and practices needed to engage families authentically, and shared stories of parent partnerships across the country. ZERO TO THREE thanks our partners the United Parent Leaders Action Network (UPLAN), Partnership for America’s Children, MomsRising / Mamas con Poder, Start Early, the National Parent Leadership Institute (NPLI), Greater Rochester Parent Leadership Training Institute, and the Washington State Association of Head Start and ECEAP Parent Ambassadors.
