(Moline, IL)  “The U in Community - An Education Fair On Ways U Can Be Part of the Solution” is being held on April 8th at the Moline Viking Club.  The Early Childhood Coalition has partnered with a number of other local agencies to offer the event for parents, family members, and concerned citizens to learn more about ways that their voices can be used to make a difference in the state.

There will be tables of information focusing on the impact of possible budget cuts and a variety of ways individuals can advocate for the services that impact them, their families, and their communities.

This event is not early childhood specific, but is concentrating on the impact cuts across education and human services will have on all of our community.   This event is scheduled for April 8th from 4:00-7:00pm at the Moline Viking Club.

Available for interviews are organizers, parents who are worried about education cuts and spokespeople for human services agencies.  The free fair is sponsored by the Early Childhood Coalition of the Illinois Quad Cities.
