Policy Agenda Focus Group: Education
February 24, 2022 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
During this focus group, we will explore the sector’s role in early childhood education, current challenges faced by our network, and how educational equity can support economic empowerment. We also will discuss the current mental health crisis affecting children and adolescents and the ways our organizations can partner with K-12 education to support behavioral health.
About the 2022-2024 Policy Agenda Setting Process and Focus Groups
Social Current is currently leading a highly inclusive and collaborative process to engage its network in developing its federal policy agenda for 2022-2024. The agenda-setting process will determine the federal policies and issues of focus for our network’s collective policy and advocacy work. Our coordinated and connected efforts will provide the Social Current network with the support and influence needed to engage their boards, staff, and communities in achieving federal policy change.
This series of focus groups, held in February and March, will capture critical feedback from the Social Current network on policy issue areas. All Social Current network organizations, including those that have purchased engagement packages or are pursuing or have achieved COA Accreditation, are strongly encouraged to participate relevant focus groups. We welcome the input of leaders at all levels.
