Colorado voters made history for kids this election season by overwhelmingly voting in favor of universal preschool. SCAN advocates worked hard to win, bringing their talents, time and energy to mobilize voters in favor of Proposition EE. Here are some highlights.
This November, Colorado is uniquely positioned to make an incredible investment in our youngest learners, their families and our economy. Here’s how.
SCAN’s advocacy led to many state victories and investments in early education that will change the lives of children for years to come.
Across the U.S., SCAN advocates participated in a Get Out the Vote for Kids Week of Action. The result? Many more voices for kids!
This year rocked many of us – for obvious reasons. But here at Save the Children Action Network (SCAN), we took each challenge and made the best of it with the help of our incredible volunteers across the country. Here are a just a few of our volunteers who rocked in 2020!
2020 wasn’t all bad! Many SCAN supporters showed up for kids. Now, I’d like to take a moment to celebrate victories that inspired me.
This school year, more than 125 passionate high school and college students across 13 states worked diligently to engage their classmates, communities, candidates running for office and elected officials around making change for kids.
Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) applauds the Colorado electorate for voting for kids during yesterday’s election by passing Proposition EE. The overwhelming passage of Proposition EE is a historic moment for Colorado and an unprecedented opportunity for Colorado’s kids, providing free, voluntary access to at least 10 hours of preschool per week to all Colorado four-year-olds, beginning in 2023.
If passed this November, Proposition EE would provide funding for all four-year-old children in Colorado to have access to voluntary preschool starting in 2023
Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) applauds the Colorado General Assembly for passing House Bill 20B-1002: Emergency Relief Programs for the Child Care Sector. Not only will the bill help to sustain and protect Colorado’s existing child care providers through the creation of a Child Care Sustainability Grant Program, but it will also work to rebuild Colorado’s child care industry – which is suffering severely from COVID-related closures – through a new Emerging and Expanding Child Care Grant Program. The bill passed with strong bipartisan support in the House and Senate.
