"No Small Matter": Next Steps
Creating a Movement
September 26, 2019
Because over one hundred people have now seen the documentary No Small Matter in New Glarus, and many are asking, “What can I do to ensure every child has opportunity and access to high quality early childhood environments?” Brooke Skidmore (The Growing Tree) and I are hosting an informal meeting open to the public on October 2, 2019, at Corrine’s Little Explorers, 854 10th Avenue in New Glarus, starting at 6:30 p.m.
As a group we will talk about what it is that we feel is needed for investment from a caregiver, community, and early childhood perspective. We will talk about how to communicate with elected officials and those running for office. This will ensure that they know what their constituents’ concerns and priorities are so they can represent us in office effectively. We will talk about educating yourself as a voter so that you know how to cast your vote. We will talk about how to ensure every child has opportunity through programs in the community. These can be formal regulated care investment or informal community and library programs a child can participate in with a caregiver or parent. If you cannot make it, but still would like to be included in future events, please contact Corrine at email@example.com.
For those of you who still want to see the documentary, the New Glarus Public Library will be hosting a screening from 3:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m., on Saturday, November 9, 2019, in the Community Room. If you would like to arrange a screening in your community contact Corrine at the above email to get more information.
