Dear Jessica,


We are thinking of you. We are thinking of your families, children and the communities you serve during these extremely painful times. While it can be difficult to process all that has been happening in our nation— violence, racism, hatred and loss — we know there's great strength in a community that stands together. Please know that all of us All Our Kin are here to support you in every way that we can. 

Our first priority remains the health and well-being of our staff and family of educators. For that purpose, we will be holding space on June 7 from 6-7 p.m to grieve, heal and connect. Stay tuned for more details to come. You can visit our resource page for tools to help cope and navigate through traumatic events.

We believe in our collective vision to create a better world that every child needs and deserves. And we stand with you in fighting for that world with all the power and passion that we have.  

Sending our love, friendship and support,

The All Our Kin Team

All Our Kin will join partners across New York City to demand a $10 million investment in New York City’s FY23 budget, so that undocumented children have access to the same early childhood care and education programs as other children. With only a few weeks left in the city budget season to win this demand, the campaign relies on our supporters and allies to get the word out. You can use your voice to spread the word about this campaign on social media using this Digital Toolkit.

For more information about the campaign, please review this one-pager and this FAQ.
