Council for a Strong America

The Council for a Strong America (CSA) is a network of more than 9,000 unexpected messengers. Its five membership organizations — Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, Mission: Readiness, ReadyNation, Shepherding the Next Generation, and Champions for America’s Future — champion research-based public investments that help all children succeed. 

Alliance-Funded Support for State Advocacy

  • CSA will collaborate with Alliance partners in six states to advance early childhood polices and investments by identifying, engaging, and mobilizing new and existing unexpected messengers; producing strategic research; conducting media campaigns; and carrying out individual meetings with policymakers and other key stakeholders. Based on the state’s political context and the advocates’ interest, CSA will strategically deploy its members from the 5 sibling organizations to protect early childhood programs from looming cuts to state budgets.
  • CSA will continue to highlight the lack of affordable, quality child care and demonstrate the importance of this vital sector and transform more policymakers into champions of early childhood education.
