2020 Summer Institute

DEY 2020 Virtual Summer Institute

Tuesday, July 21 – Friday, July 24      4-6 pm EDT each day

For our 2020 Virtual Institute, we hosted four panel discussions.  Invited speakers and a moderator discussed issues related to the topic and answered questions from the audience.  After the Summer Institute,  we plan to launch the DEY Protect Childhood Working Groups.  We will identify 3-4 working group topics and invite supporters to join a group. Working groups can produce the following: issue briefs, fact sheets, sign-on statements, petitions, legislation, town hall, and workshops for teachers/parents.

Panel 1: Lessons Learned from the Response to COVID 19: Protecting Early Childhood Education – Tuesday, July 21st 4-6 pm EST

Panel 2: Childhood Trauma in the Time of Coronavirus; Teachers, Families, and Communities as Protective Factors – Wednesday, July 22nd 4-6 pm EST
