Experiences in the first three years of life build the foundation for all future learning, behavior, and health. Yet. America’s maternal mortality rates are among the highest in the developed world. And for families of color, the odds are stacked against them as they face systemic racism and a historical lack of investment. Government leaders are developing and reforming practices and policies that equitably support children and families during the prenatal-to age 3 developmental period.

Join us to hear how local and state government are working to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity rates, improving outcomes, and advancing equity for future generations.

This webinar is part of the State and Local Government Prenatal-to-Three Collaboration in Action initiative, conducted in partnership with the National League of Cities, National Association of Counties Research FoundationNational Conference of State Legislatures and the National Collaborative for Infants and Toddlers.
