The Early Childhood Colorado Partnership (ECCP) has leveraged The Raising of America documentary series as a tool to maximize shared efforts to ensure Colorado children are valued, healthy and thriving. Much of this activity took place between 2014-2016, and contributed to Colorado being highlighted in a case study developed by California Newsreel, the production company for The Raising of America.

The Partnership has developed the enclosed toolkit of resources that is intended to support partners as they continue to host various conversations and screenings across Colorado around The Raising of America documentary series.

The Partnership has DVD copies of the The Raising of America documentary series available to lend to partners for screenings. For information on borrowing a DVD for your organization, email earlychildhood@civiccanopy.org.
