To support young children’s rights to participate fully in their communities, there is a need to address the serious gaps in access to early childhood education (preschool). Multnomah County programs and citizens acknowledge that gaps are often generated by systemic inequities that leave a deficit image of the child. The first step to creating equitable access—acknowledging children as capable of making meaningful contributions to our city—is to invite communities across Multnomah County and the larger Portland metro area to engage in conversations about addressing opportunities to serve all children.
This event is free and open to the public, but we need to plan for your group. Space is limited. Reserve your seat today!
