Early Childhood Advocacy Day

Early Childhood Advocacy Day


We first want to send positive thoughts to those who are being impacted by the effects of COVID-19 here in Chicago and throughout the world. We especially want to thank our early childhood education partners and providers who are unwavering in their care for young children and families.

We have been in close communications with our partners Illinois Action for Children and Latino Policy Forum, monitoring the continuing developments around the current health crisis. Together, our top priority is the well-being and health of children, families, advocates, providers and the communities we serve.

In light of these circumstances, we will be canceling Early Childhood Advocacy Day, which was scheduled for later this month. In the meantime, follow the Ounce’s Twitter feed for our latest policy updates.

We thank you for your interest in attending and look forward to you joining us next year.
