    As Early Childhood Educators advocacy is embedded within our role.  To better prepare myself for the moment our profession finds us in, moving from the margins and into our national infrastructure, I attended my first Public Policy Forum (PPF) this year.  There was an astounding range of information, resources and panelists' perspectives.  The On-Demand sessions, "A Shared Understanding: Federal Budget and Appropriations" with Martha Coven and Lauren Hogan's youtube link within this session, which discussed the structure within the House and Senate and how funding connects to federal programs targeted to EC, especially helped me grow further in my role as EC Advocate.  Is it possible to get a link to both of these On-Demand sessions to share with colleagues that did not attend 2021 PPF?  A better understanding of how federal programs operate, are funded and the legislative structure surrounding budget functions enable us to more fully promote our shared vision of quality EC for all our children.
