Despite a state mandate to provide high-quality preschool to low-income children across the state, New Jersey has yet to fund this critical early education.
What can you do? Plenty! And it doesn’t have to take a lot of time.
Your state lawmakers, the governor and our representatives in Congress need to hear that their constituents – the people who vote for them – support investments in preschool. Below are four easy ways to influence your elected officials.
1. Write a letter.
A simple letter can persuade decision-makers to support preschool. Keep it brief and stick to the main message that investments in preschool are good for kids, our communities, and our state.
2. Send an email.
Email is another effective way to reach the people who can fund preschool.
3. Connect on social media.
Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites allow people to directly connect to their elected officials.
