Our ECE community in action – Walk Around the Block 2017

Thank you to everyone who came out to the Walk Around the Block today and the Young Child’s March in Sacramento on Monday. Today we had over 500 early educators, children, parents, and community supporters at City Hall, and a total of over 800 walking and writing letters in neighborhoods throughout the city. What a Week of the Young Child this has been!

It was great to hear from Assemblymember David Chiu, Supervisor Norman Yee, Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer; April Leung from Parent Voices; Esperanza Estrada from FCCA; FacesSF Teacher Amy Clark, and Calif. Coalition for Equity in ECE (CCEECE) representatives, FacesSF E.D. Lawland Long and Wu Yee Children’s Services CEO Monica Walters; as well as teachers, parents, children and their allies who came out to the Walk from all over San Francisco.

Thanks for coming together to make some noise! Together we will be heard, and together we will make a difference.

We’d love to see what you did. Do you have photos you’d like to share? Email us at info@ecesf.org so I can share the SFCCPA DropBox.

Below are some of the photos from the City Hall Walk Around the Block and the Young Child’s March in Sacramento on Monday as well as press coverage from Monday’s March.
