As many of you know, President Obama recently proposed significant investments in preschool, home visiting, Early Head Start and child care. It is the most comprehensive early childhood agenda we’ve seen in years.
Unfortunately, the President’s plan is a long way from becoming a reality. Our colleagues at the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) have begun a “10,000 letter” campaign to show support for the President’s early learning initiative.
We need to send written letters to the President. Below is a sample letter you can simply copy and paste into a word document or tailor to send your own special message. The letters should be sent to the National Women’s Law Center, at 11 Dupont Circle, NW, #800, Washington, DC 20036, no later than May 2!
These letters will be used to help the President convince Congress to support this early learning plan for children. Please take a moment now to send a letter – the old-fashioned way – through the U.S. mail. These letters will be presented to the President. Send your letter today!
Thank you for speaking up for New Jersey children and children across the U.S.
Sample Letter to President
Dear Mr. President,
I am writing to express my strong support for your early learning proposal that would provide significant investments in preschool, home visiting, Early Head Start and child care. This comprehensive approach to early childhood is long overdue and would help thousands of young children get off to the right start, improving the chances that they will grow up safe, healthy and educated.
As you know, the first years are critical in laying the foundation for future success in school and in life. New Jersey has been a leader in providing high-quality preschool to thousands of children. Federal support will help New Jersey and all states expand this successful start to early learning.
Thank you again for your commitment to the children of the United States.

Child a Chance.
