- The GLR Campaign’s national Funder-to-Funder Huddle will be held April 23-24, prior to the Council on Foundations Annual Conference in San Francisco.

Read more on the Huddle.
- New articles in the Huddle’s Current Events discussion include links to a story about attendance in pre-K and to a Huffington Post story highlighting two-generation approaches to supporting early childhood success. Join the discussion!
