Why: The opioid epidemic has seriously compromised the strength of our nation: threatening public safety, impacting the workforce, and tearing families apart. Parental substance abuse is a significant Adverse Childhood Experience that can impact a child’s health and wellbeing throughout life. High-quality early care and education programs can offer a powerful approach to helping children impacted by the opioid crisis.

Join this convening of powerful voices from the business, law enforcement, and early childhood communities.
