April 8th TMR: Early Childhood Alliance in Onondaga County

Syracuse, N.Y. – Laurie Black, director of the Early Childhood Alliance of Onondaga County, will discuss the organization’s work in Central New York during a public forum from 8 to 9 a.m. Thursday hosted by Syracuse University’s Thursday Morning Roundtable.

Launched in 2015 after it was recommended in a 2013-2014 Onondaga Citizens League study, the Early Childhood Alliance (ECA) strives to ensure that all young children in the county are healthy, thriving and successful in school and life, and all families of young children are supported in their parenting. To reach those goals, the ECA designs and oversees a coordinated strategy to create an integrated local system of early childhood care and family support services.

Now in its 55th year, Thursday Morning Roundtable features speakers who discuss current topics in Central New York. Following the forum, residents can use the chat function to ask questions and Emily Winiecki, community engagement coordinator for Syracuse University’s Office of Community Engagement, will moderate the Q&A session.

Here are the details:
