Jessica,


Last week, All Our Kin joined the Empire State Child Care Campaign in Albany for Advocacy Day! We rallied and met with elected officials to share the need for the state to invest $1 billion in compensation for educators and $60 million towards child care for undocumented children, so that every child has equal access to high quality care.


Our work isn’t over — we will continue to meet with State Senators and Assemblymembers to push for these investments. If you’d like to participate in opportunities to speak with your elected officials, please contact Steven at steven@allourkin.org.


Together we can build a system that meets the needs of educators and families.


Sincerely,

The All Our Kin Team

Offerings

Early childhood educators often sit at the intersection of complex individual and societal challenges. From COVID to the ongoing issue of racial violence, the need for mental and behavioral support has become more urgent than ever before.


As a response, All Our Kin will offer a Professional Development series centered on stress, trauma, loss and mental wellness. In this year-long workshop series, you will learn key strategies for:


  • Regulating the nervous system to promote health and healing
  • Supporting children during difficult times
  • Reflection and developing deep relationships with the children your care


Deadline to register for Somatic Experiencing for Resolving Stress and Trauma is Thursday, Feb. 23! Don’t miss it.
