Our 10-Point Policy Plan

Yesterday is already too late and tomorrow is not soon enough!

We demand a Black “whole child,” “whole family,” “whole ECE workforce,” and  “whole community” approach. We will no longer tolerate a generalized approach to the needs of Black ECE constituents.

We demand a shift that results in California using policies and resources to address anti-Blackness in its structures while also investing in, affirming and advancing the cultural assets of Black people.
