Event description

Description

Every year, Children’s Defense Fund-Minnesota publishes a KIDS COUNT Data Book. The book provides state data based on a variety of indicators that show the well-being of Minnesota’s children and families. The data serve as benchmarks of child well-being for policymakers and citizens and help to enrich local, state and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children. CDF-MN organizes an annual KIDS COUNT Coffee Tour around the release of the book to provide policymakers and citizens from across the state with the opportunity to learn about the data and engage on issues of child well-being.

On Thursday, December 12, the Douglas County Early Childhood Initiative will host a KIDS COUNT Coffee event at the Douglas County Library in Alexandria. We invite you to join us for this event! Attendees will learn about the 2019 data book released in November entitled “Navigating Systems for Children's Well-being," which focuses on trends in key indicators of child and family well-being and highlights public policy that has improved or could improve outcomes for children and the entire state of Minnesota. Most of the data is disaggregated by race and ethnicity, and we've highlighted programs that use data to advance outcomes for children.

Refreshments will be provided!
