Communications

Communications Working Group

The Alliance hosts a Communications working group for those in charge of communications and messaging for their organizations.  This peer network shares resources, challenges, and solutions via Basecamp and bi-monthly webinars.  View a sample of the webinars, polls, communications tools, and Op Eds shared by the working group.  Contact Kaylor Garcia kgarcia@childtrends.org to join the group.

FrameWorks Institute

FrameWorks designs, conducts and publishes communications research to prepare nonprofit organizations to expand their constituency base, to build public will, and to further public understanding of specific social issues.  While the following resources have a specific focus, their research and messages are easily adaptable to a variety of messaging campaigns on early childhood policy.

The Alliance funded FrameWorks Institute to research the best way to connect early childhood and anti-poverty advocacy efforts.  These tools resulted from that research. 

Through the generosity of the Annie E. Casey Foundation, we are able to share three webinars FrameWorks did for the KIDS COUNT network on Navigating Dominant Thinking on Race, Equity, and Inclusion.  These webinars provide an introduction to the methodology and major findings from FrameWorks’ research.
