Thank you for coming to the 2017 SFCCPA ECE Issues Luncheon!

Thank you to everyone who came out to the SFCCPA ECE Issues Luncheon on June 2nd. It was great to have elected leaders in the house: Senator Wiener, Assemblymember Chiu, Supervisor Yee, Supervisor Fewer, Supervisor Sheehy, and Kayleigh Lloyd, legislative aide to Supervisor Breed. Thanks also to Monica Walters, Exec. Dir., Wu Yee Children’s Services, CPAC Chair, CCEECE founder; Dr. Lygia Stebbing, EDvance Director at SF State University; and the ECECAN Players, as well as to the many providers in attendance for sharing perspectives from the field and innovative ideas on funding ECE. You can see press coverage of the event here and photos below.

We also took a moment to recognize the good work of Rosie Kennedy, FCCASF director, and long term educator, Family Child Care provider, and advocate. And in the spirit of Rosie’s activism, invite all to make sure ECE is in the news, and social media as the state and SF budgets are finalized. Join us!
