The first five years of a child’s development are critical to later success in school and in life. To prosper, our children need access to physical and mental health care, socioemotional supports, and high-quality early learning experiences.

Join us at the Center for Health Equity on Wednesday, February 26th from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., as we mobilize Pinellas County’s collective resources to develop a more unified and comprehensive early childhood system. Learn how you can contribute to the growing movement to foster Birth to 5 initiatives through public–private partnerships, family caregiver support, initiative funding, governance, and more.

Keynote by David Lawrence Jr., founder of the Children’s Movement of Florida, and author of A Dedicated Life: Journalism, Justice and a Chance for Every Child.

Admission is free, but registration is requested. Signed books are available for free for the first 200 registrants. Attendance is required to receive the book.
