Racial Equity & Systems Transformation in Early Childhood


The K-12 sector has seen a rise in racial equity and justice conversations that has led to both progress and setbacks for Black children and families. However, the early childhood development sector stands in the shadows of K-12 racial equity conversations even though advancement in early childhood sets the foundation for lifelong success. National philanthropic, health and nonprofit leaders, as well as grassroots practitioners, will discuss how the early childhood sector can prioritize racial equity and systems transformation to support the unique needs of Black children across the country.
