Championing Equity for Children in Our Communities
On July 15th, join ECFC for the release of a new toolkit for early childhood funders seeking to invest in immigrant children and other bilingual or multilingual children.
Fully 25% of all young children in the U.S. grow up in immigrant families. They are a critical part of a promising inclusive, multilingual future for the U.S. In recent years, we have been alarmed by the uptick in explicit xenophobia and racism, coupled with harsh national policies like family separation, that threatened the safety and security of immigrant families, many of whom are people of color.
We believe that we can do better to address the inequities faced by children in immigrant families. No matter whether your philanthropic interest is health, mental health, education, family support, or community-based approaches, you have a role to play in fully supporting all children.
On July 15th, we will proudly present the Championing Equity for Children in Our Communities Toolkit, a new resource full of practical strategies for getting started, tips on where to find relevant data to inform your decisions, our commitments to you moving forward, and profiles of key Champions for Equity within the early learning funding community. From their stories, funders will see the many entry points to work toward greater inclusion in your portfolios.
