Our nation is fighting a battle on two fronts: the coronavirus pandemic and systemic racism. The impacts of these two crises on children and families can’t be ignored. There is no time like the present to make intentional change that will lead to measurable results. At ROC the Future, we work every day to promote alignment and systemic change to ensure every child is School Ready, Supported, Successful and College & Career Ready. While learning will look different going forward, our mission remains the same: we are focused on children’s success, TOGETHER. This year we are proud to present the 8th Annual State of Our Children Address and Report Card Release taking place November 16-19, 2020. Our theme is Equity and Education: The Next Horizon.
As we prepare for a virtual event, we look forward to sharing our progress with you, co-developing systemic solutions for future success and ensuring equitable outcomes TOGETHER. Your support as a sponsor will help ensure that our collective efforts will not be interrupted by a global pandemic that has already severely impacted those who are most disenfranchised. We welcome your support by signing on to sponsor this important community event. The event will be offered at no cost to attendees and all dollars raised will help us ensure that we can continue to align efforts, mobilize resources and increase our impact.
