Happy New Year

We hope your end of year celebrations provided opportunities to rest, recharge and reflect on your accomplishments in 2023. Here are some of our highlights from last year:

February 2024

Celebrate Black History Month

This month we celebrate and honor the historical struggles of Black Americans and reflect on the discriminatory policies, systems and social structures that have stood in the way of racial equality. Build Up California is especially committed to raising up the voices of Black early care and education providers and advocating for their equal pay and adequate access to state resources. Our advocacy efforts to increase the availability of and access to high quality early care and education facilities is in direct response to the growing challenge families of color face in accessing high quality child care, due in part to historically segregated neighborhoods.

This month, our staff have enjoyed reading through Zero to Three’s Honoring Black Excellence in Early Childhood resource to continue learning about the Black men and women that were early pioneers of the field and are current leaders in and outside the classroom.
