Early Education and School Age Provider Lobby Day

April 8, 2015 was an incredible morning at the Massachusetts State House, when over 500 Put MA Kids First Coalition members, and their advocates, gathered in Gardner Auditorium for Early Education and School Age Provider Lobby Day.

We were very grateful to Speaker Robert DeLeo for his opening words. A longtime supporter of providers and the children in their care, he called for all of us to help him in the fight to fund the education continuum. Speaker DeLeo is a strong and steadfast ally, but he can’t do it alone.

Our President and CEO, Marie St. Fleur, lit up the crowd with an energetic rallying speech. She got a standing ovation!

Commissioner Tom Weber took time out of his day to be with us, as did Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz. Both are impassioned supporters of early education across the Commonwealth.

Let’s all bear their words in mind – do not let up the pressure on your legislators! Keep this energy moving! See all the photos on our Facebook page:
