Save the Children Action Network
Established to expand Save the Children’s capacity to transform young lives, Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) holds elected leaders accountable for investments in children from birth to age five. Save the Children Action Network’s Early Childhood Education campaign is focused on influencing public policy on both the federal and state level through advocacy, mobilization and political action to ensure we prioritize investments in our youngest, and too often forgotten, global citizens – our children. We are working with government leaders and partner organizations to advance comprehensive, national early childhood education legislation and elevate early childhood education as an issue that can influence the outcome of political campaigns nationwide.
By focusing on key target states and engaging a national advocacy network of activists, Save the Children Action Network is raising the visibility of early childhood education as a top priority at the local, state and federal level. Save the Children Action Network will participate in the Invest in Us campaign by engaging our national network through online and offline actions, social media posts and graphics designed to increase public awareness about the key tenets of the campaign and the bipartisan support for early education. We will also engage media around ways to implement creative funding mechanisms to support the campaign while also mobilizing supporters around the country to engage our nation’s governors to expand access to early education.
