Every voice counts...make your voice count today.

We all can have a role in letting our elected officials and other community leaders know about the challenges families in Alaska face in finding quality early care and education programs. Sharing our stories, whether we are parents, early educators or community members is one way to make our voices heard. Telling these personal stories is how we can make the sometime complexity of these issues come to life. When a hardship or inspirational story touches someone into action, we know we've made a difference!

To share your story, email and put "My Story" in the subject line of your email.
