  • Learn about the newest findings on the science of the developing child.
  • Discuss how policy choices can lead to or reduce racial disparities.
  • Launch the first and much anticipated 2020 Prenatal-to-3 State Policy Roadmap, paired with custom state Roadmaps and online data interactives.

2020 Cradle to Career Network Convening 
September 18-25, 2020
Every year, StriveTogether brings together the power of our national movement for an event dedicated to connecting, learning and creating change. This year, the Cradle to Career Network Convening is going virtual. This won’t be your typical virtual conference. Based on your feedback and input over the last three months, we’ve adjusted the timeline and structure to make sure you have the opportunity to learn and connect with peers and leaders from across the country. We’re committed to developing the content you need in a format designed to engage, energize and recharge — including powerful keynotes from Geoffrey Canada and Nikole Hannah-Jones, time to gather with peers, and space for critical conversations. You’ll end the week with the resources, ideas and partners you need to advance your work. As we deepen our commitment to shifting power to Black, Indigenous, Latinx and people of color, the power of you is more important than ever. Every child deserves every opportunity to succeed. Every community holds the answers to make it possible. Join us as we build a better future with youth and families.
