As I am continuing my research on the ZERO TO THREE page, I thought why not look at the “Become an Advocate” button. We all know to be good advocates for the early childhood field, so I wanted to see what do they suggest we do.
Entering the first area, I came across a page that is labeled Advocacy Action Center. Infants and toddlers do not have a voice in the public policy process, BUT WE DO!! By working together with many other, we can leverage our voices to ensure all infants and toddlers have the opportunity to succeed. We can be the BIg Voice for Little Kids and take action.
On this particular page, there are 4 ways to be an active advocate:
1. Get Advocacy alerts: Find the current advocacy alerts and take action to help infants, toddlers, and their families.
2. Rally 4 Babies: It is time to make our voices heard with all of the elected officials as we continue to #Rally4Babies
3. Join on Twitter: Follow them on Twitter to participate in our Twitter chats and to get the latest information about the policies and issues that matter most to parents, professionals, and advocates.
4. Share Posts on Facebook: Liking their FB page, you will begin getting updates on parenting tips, policy news, and the latest information that matters most to parents and professionals.
I really liked these 4 pages as the way we live these days are more on social media than anywhere else.
Doing the further research, there was an option to Explore my research.
The next page gave more links into joining sites:
