PARTNERSHIP HOLDS 2024 LOBBY DAY
With the 2024 General Assembly session in full swing, we were thrilled to hold our 2024 Virginia Promise Partnership Lobby Day earlier this month. During the event,
parents, providers, and champions from across the state convened in Richmond to share their stories with members of the General Assembly and underscore the importance of investing in child care.
When meeting with lawmakers, Promise Advocates shared a
two-pager outlining the Partnership's priority bills and budget amendments, as well as our
storybook highlighting the perspectives of parents from across Virginia. Following meetings with legislators, advocates were introduced on the House and Senate floors by
House Education Committee Chair Sam Rasoul (D-Roanoke City) and Senate Education & Health Committee Chair Ghazala Hashmi (D-Midlothian).
Check out some highlights from the lobby day event below! Over the coming weeks, the Partnership will be sharing additional advocacy opportunities to advance our efforts in the General Assembly - be on the lookout for upcoming action alerts!
