Right from the Start
Advocates for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ) is an education and advocacy organization that educates the public and policymakers and equips caregivers with the information they need to be a child’s strongest ally. It focuses on child welfare and juvenile justice, early learning, healthcare for children, and support for low-income families.
This project supports the development and dissemination of a strategic communications plan that will put into action key recommendations from a 2013-2014 ACNJ Right from the Start project funded by The Nicholson Foundation. The plan educates policymakers and other stakeholders about needed improvements to New Jersey’s early education systems; makes a data-driven case for increased public and private investments in child care; and builds a network of champions for high-quality early childhood programs among the New Jersey business community.
