Racial Justice, Equity and Child Care
thread works to help families and caregivers raise the next generation of Alaskans.
In this work, we have an obligation to reflect on our individual beliefs and values, our organization’s values and our commitment to our mission that all Alaskan children have access to affordable quality early childhood education programs to grow and learn. Our work is centered on the core tenets of social and economic justice – that equal opportunities are available to every child and family.
