Spring Into Action

Illinois Action for Children’s 22nd annual public policy and advocacy conference, Spring into Action, was held on April 2-3 in Springfield Illinois. Spring into Action brings early childhood providers, stakeholders, and advocates together for policy-oriented workshops, capitol visits to speak with legislators, and networking opportunities to connect with other members of the field.
