SF ECE Advocacy Coalition Meetings
April 26 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The SF ECE Advocacy Coalition meets twice monthly on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month, from 4 – 5 pm.
ECESF led the passage of Prop C (2018) as well as the early release of funds blocked by the lawsuit through the successful passage of Prop F (2020). To strengthen our work, we worked in coalition with partners, including Parent Voices, R&Rs, and other individual and organizational community members. Once Prop C passed we led CPAC/OECE AdHoc committees to engage the community in planning the use of funds. From the planning work it was clear, while an estimated $120M annually was a fantastic victory, for our vision of an ECE for All that addresses equity needs and supports a stable workforce, these funds were not adequate.
ECESF and Children’s Council committed to ongoing work to maintain a coalition bringing ECESF educators together with families, engaged agencies, and community members to build campaigns to win ECE for All. The SF ECE Advocacy Coalition was born out of that process, with ECESF as a primary leader focused on bringing ECE educators to the coalition table.
