The Children's Agenda released key findings from a first-of-its kind poll. 400 parents county-wide weighed in on the stress they are feeling when it comes to economic, educational, and mental health impacts of the pandemic. They also shared opinions regarding policy solutions they support. The Children's Agenda will use this data in its advocacy efforts.

This hour, we discuss the poll, the results, and we talk with parents about the stressors they are experiencing and the changes they'd like to see. Our guests:
