Dear Friend,

We need your urgent support. Recently released 2019 data from the Virginia Kindergarten Readiness Program found that 44% of all children in Virginia are entering kindergarten not ready in one or more areas ofliteracy, math, social skills, or self-regulation.

Last week, HB 1012 (Bulova) and SB 578 (Howell)cleared their first hurdles in the legislative process. Now, they will be heard by the full “money committees” as early as this week!

These bills are a result of stakeholder engagement and will provide critical improvements to do the following:

  • Increase access to early childhood programs
  • Focus on equity for all children
  • Improve the quality of programs
  • Make a lasting impact in Virginia

Your voice is important, and urging your legislator to support HB 1012 and SB 578 could make the difference in your Delegate and Senator’s support.

Thank you for your support and taking action on behalf of all Virginia Children.

My best,

Lisa Howard
E3, President & CEO
