You’re invited to Groundwork Ohio’s virtual event Laying the Groundwork Summit: in the Ohio House on Friday, March 19th from 10:00-11:30 AM. We are thrilled to announce stellar guest appearances from the following policymakers:

- Director Kristi Burre from the Governor's Office of Children's Initiatives
- Assistant Minority Leader Kristin Boggs
- Finance Committee Ranking Minority Member Erica Crawley
- Finance Subcommittee on Health & Human Services Chairman Bill Roemer

This virtual summit is an opportunity to learn how Ohio's biennial budget can support quality early childhood experiences for Ohio kids, families and communities and how you can engage throughout the budget process.
Following the event, you are invited to participate in our Making this Moment a Movement 5-day Virtual Advocacy Challenge where you will commit 5 minutes of your time each day for 5 days as we provide you easy opportunities to elevate your voice and influence statewide policy. We are calling on parents, caregivers, early childhood professionals, community leaders, policymakers, business owners, advocates and more to share their stories at the Statehouse and urge legislators to invest in the future of all young children in Ohio.
Together, we will make this moment a movement!
