As 2017 is coming to a close, the BUILD Initiative decided to check in to see how it is going. In states with well-organized advocates and leaders who are building strong coalitions and developing a focused agenda, some focus on early learning is seen. Let’s take a closer look at Connecticut and New Jersey.

If we believe that the federal budget is a reflection of our values and priorities as a nation, then we may soon look like a nation that cares little about the future of our most defenseless children.

While the immediate threat of an Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal has passed, it’s safe to assume that it’s only a matter of time before the GOP attempts another effort to reduce health care coverage. As the administration endeavors to cut corners and limit access to equitable healthcare, our nation’s poorest children and families are at risk of losing health care coverage. The most recent GOP ACA-replacement, the Graham-Cassidy bill, would have jeopardized coverage for the nine million children protected by the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which has not received renewed funding despite a September 30 deadline for Congress to take action on the policy.

We started our evacuation in a veritable clown car at the crack of dawn: Mom, Dad, a grumpy toddler strapped into a carseat, a dog who uses a wheelchair to get around, and three cats. We were prepared to make the 17-hour trip to NoVa as quickly as possible - we’d done it countless times before. The evacuation route for Florida, Georgia, and the Carolinas is, unsurprisingly, straight up I-95. After hours of gridlock, and overnight stops in Savannah, GA and Florence, SC, we finally made it home - THREE days later. Thankfully, in the end, the storm was weaker than what we had prepared for and my parents’ home is relatively undamaged. The drive was really tough - especially for Dad and toddler - but we certainly survived. At no point did I feel that we should have just stayed in Miami.
