LGK Advisory Committee for Racial Equity

Let’s Grow Kids (LGK) has announced a new opportunity to help shape the future of child care in Vermont, their Families of Color Advisory Committee for Racial Equity in Child Care Policy.

The goal of this new group is to help ensure Vermont’s child care system serves all Vermont families, including children of color and their families. The advisory committee of parents and families of color is designed to give LGK advice and feedback.
