Sign Up for Public Policy Updates

Trying Together has launched our 2017–18 Policy Agenda with nine priorities to:

Do What’s Best for Children

Invest Adequately

Enhance Quality

To accomplish this work, we need supporters who will join us to raise their voices, use traditional and social media, and meet with policy makers.

We need to remember that children are trying, too—trying to understand their feelings and their world, trying to please the people they love, trying to grow. When grownups and children are trying together, just about anything can be possible.
