Preschool for All Campaign Briefing
September 23, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Learn more about Measure 26-214, the P4A campaign, and how you can support it! Commissioner Jessica Vega Pederson and Partner Mark Holloway will join us to share an update with the SVP Partnership.
Eight years after making our goal to get EVERY KID in our community ready for kindergarten, we finally have a real shot at securing the funding needed for our goal. SVP is a proven capacity builder, catalyst and systems change advocate, but we will never make a dent in the financial resources needed to ensure access to high quality preschool for all with private funding alone. Public financing of this initiative is the only way we can provide high-quality preschool for kids, affordability for families and a living wage for workers–the “trilemma,” as it’s been named by experts in the field.
Ballot measure 26-214 will provide the funding necessary to ensure high-quality preschool for all, with ironclad policy detail, racial equity priorities, and support for our Community Partners.
We are so close to something HUGE–not just a critical funding event to propel Access to Preschool forward, but the fulfillment of the dreams of parents and kids in our community. We can’t let this opportunity slip through our fingers. Let’s rise to meet this moment and help clench a win for kids, for equity, and yes, for SVP!
