2020 Summer Institute
DEY 2020 Virtual Summer Institute
Tuesday, July 21 – Friday, July 24 4-6 pm EDT each day
For our 2020 virtual Summer Institute; a gathering of educators, parents, researchers and activists to advance ECE priorities. We hosted four panel discussions with speakers such as Diane Ravitch, Michelle Gunderson, Josh Golin of the now Fair Play for Kids, Takiema Bunche Smith, Erika Christakis, Peter Gray, Keisha Reid and so many more.
After the Summer Institute, we launched the DEY Working Groups. We identified three working group topics, named their co-chairs, and invited supporters to join a group.
Working groups are creating various advocacy platforms, such as briefs, fact sheets, sign-on statements, petitions, legislation, town hall meetings, and workshops for teachers and parents on behalf of Defending the Early Years. Learn more about The DEY Working Groups here.
