Alliance Membership Cycle Open
The Alliance’s 2023 membership cycle is open! Alliance members are committed to a common purpose – working together to amplify early childhood voices and influence policy making in order to realize the promise of every Vermont child. We are grateful for the work of our members who advanced our vision this year. We hope you will join us in the coming year to build on the past year’s efforts and support several new initiatives.
The Alliance’s diverse coalition of members come from communities around the state that inform solutions to our health, safety, food security, economic security, and early care and education challenges. The Alliance is committed to bringing these perspectives to the State House and strengthening members’ advocacy voices along the way.
You can join or renew your annual membership online today. If you have questions, please contact the Alliance’s Outreach Manager Taylor Hughey at email@example.com.
The Alliance is a program of the Vermont Community Loan Fund which is a Section 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Therefore, your membership donation may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes.
Alliance Monthly Equity Discussion – “Winter Holiday Perils and Possibilities” – 11/18
Join a group of peers and colleagues from the early childhood community to engage in sustained learning about anti-racism, equity, and inclusion. The Alliance hosts a monthly, salon-style Equity Discussion Group via Zoom, and the next session is coming up on Friday, November 18 at 1:00 pm.
This month’s session, “Winter Holiday Perils and Possibilities,” will be facilitated by Alliance Executive Director Matt Levin. He will provide one Jewish person’s perspective on the challenges and opportunities that come with public celebrations of the traditional December holidays in classrooms, offices, waiting rooms, and break rooms.
