Advocacy Pods are open to all members of the early learning spectrum who live in the same legislative district, including: Child care providers, parents, Family, Friend & Neighbor caregivers, BrightSpark staff and board members, and community partners. Each Pod meets with their elected officials to share the realities of what it’s like to navigate finding and offering care in their neighborhoods.
The 2024 Legislative Session is almost here! To get involved with our advocacy during this short session, consider joining an Advocacy Pod. Not sure where to start? Check out the video to the right created by BrightSpark’s Mobilization Coordinator, Jaymie McLaughlin!
