Think Babies Policy Forum
Hosting an infant-toddler policy forum is a powerful opportunity to elevate the needs of babies and educate policymakers, their staff, and other key stakeholders about how policies and programs can ensure that infants, toddlers, and their families have what they need to thrive. Your forum can feature parents, policy experts, researchers, early childhood professionals, policymakers, or a combination of different types of speakers. It can be a small, informal community event or a larger state or regional event.
Consider whether your infant-toddler policy forum can be held in conjunction with the release of a new report or data about babies and families in your community or state, or with existing events in your state or community, such as a children’s advocacy day or a coalition meeting.
