As Co-Chair of the New Mexico Early Childhood Legislative Caucus, Representative Rebecca Dow continues to advocate for our most vulnerable populations and our early childhood education professionals.

Earlier this week, she had the opportunity to co-chair a conversation on workforce education, with a specific focus on Early Childhood Scholarship Funds and Degree/Certificate Attainment.

Back in February, Representative Dow was honored as the 2020 Early Childhood Champion of the Year by the New Mexico Headstart Association.

She knows there is nothing more important than protecting our little ones from conception through their early years. 

Representative Dow is honored to be able to elevate the voice of families with young children, the diverse workforce who strive everyday to create safe spaces for children to thrive, and to advocate for young children who need us most.
