I WANT TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE BIGGEST WINS FOR KIDS!
At long last, your hard work is paying off for kids. The calls, letters, tweets, meetings, rallies, vigils, and endless pushing worked.
State lawmakers passed a state budget yesterday that makes historic new increases in programs that improve the lives of children.
Each day we witness children carrying a very heavy burden, as the pandemic amplified challenges that already existed. Although not at the scale needed to lift their unjust burden completely, the state budget enacted earlier today makes unprecedented investments in children.
- $1 billion for schools
- $200 million+ for early learning programs

This completely bipartisan budget agreement shows that it’s possible for lawmakers to compromise and make progress simultaneously, especially when it comes to our state’s most valuable long-term assets – children.
Today, take a second to reflect on the progress we’ve made and recharge your batteries. Monday we will return to the hard work of making the lives of every child better.
