Stories From the Field 2020

The ZERO TO THREE Journal | Vol 40 No 6

This issue of the ZERO TO THREE Journal comes during a unique time in history. We are nearly 6 months into a world-wide pandemic that has drastically changed how we live and work. We are also facing urgent concerns about racism, justice, and equity following horrific stories of violence against people of color. Before COVID-19 and the current social unrest, we asked ZERO TO THREE Members to share their stories of working together to overcome obstacles or discover new pathways to reach the noble goal of better serving young children and families. A handful of those stories are presented here in the 10th annual issue of Stories From the Field.
