Center for American Progress
The Center for American Progress is committed to promoting progressive ideas and actions. Improving access to high-quality early childhood programs for children from birth to age five is a central goal. Over the course of the next six months, CAP will engage in a renewed effort to elevate early childhood investments and the Invest in US campaign. CAP will leverage resources across the organization to promote the campaign. As a multi-issue organization, we will seek to bring stakeholders from a multitude of areas including economic justice, health, education, civil rights, and poverty to join the fight to push for investments in early childhood programs. CAP will play a major role in the Invest in US campaign event. We will use social media to echo the core messages of the campaign and produce sharable graphics for partners to distribute. For each event, we will leverage our in-house experts to articulate the need for investments in early childhood to improve the economy and outcomes for children and families. We will do a media push and develop products that make the case for increased investment in early childhood programs. We will also encourage our network of over 300 state-based organizations to incorporate a grassroots push for early childhood into their work.
