This year CCC expanded our Keeping Track database to offer users the ability to illustrate where risks to child well-being concentrate and whether
needed infrastructure, supports and services exist in communities. We engaged in participatory research to bring the voice of community members and direct service providers to our data analysis and to inform local policy solutions and budgetary priorities. We leveraged social media, online advocacy platforms and call-in campaigns to disseminate new data reports and to engage and mobilize New Yorkers to raise their voices on behalf of New York’s children at the local, state and federal level.
We played a leadership role in diverse coalitions that helped pave the way for historic victories for New York’s young people, including helping to ensure passage of state legislation to raise the age of criminal responsibility, secure needed local resources to bring free universal lunch to all public school students, and make the case for a new labor contract providing early childhood educators with long overdue salary increases.
