The Connecticut Project Action Fund Workshop
On January 17, 2024 the Collective welcomed Coralys Santana, Policy and Advocacy Strategist, as well as Mathias Burner, Engagement and Mobilization Manager with The Connecticut Project Action Fund as our first guests in the new year! As many know, a new state law will prevent nearly 9,000 children from starting kindergarten next year, and burden their families with unexpected childcare costs, creating uncertainty for parents of young children about whether there will be room for them in preschool. The CT Project is gearing up for the upcoming legislative session to appeal to lawmakers to offer support to the parent and families who will be affected by this new law, and they need your support!!
