2017 Kids Count Data Book : Resources for advocates

Joining the 2017 Kids Count in Michigan Data Book release

Release date: Tuesday, April 18, 2017

The 2017 Kids Count in Michigan Data Book will be released under an embargo on April 11th. The embargo lifts at 12:01 a.m. April 18th. That means information from the report should not appear on websites or in the news media in any way prior to 12:01 a.m. April 18th. A story posted at 11:59 p.m. April 17th breaks the embargo while one posted at 12:01 a.m. April 18th does not.

What can you do as an advocate in your community to join in the release so that we can move policies that improve the lives of Michigan’s kids?
