On September 9th, executive director Dee Dee Parker Wright's letter defending higher professional development standards for early childhood education teachers was published in the Letters to the Editor section of the Washington Post.

On September 19th, PBS Newshour featured a segment highlighting how Jubilee JumpStart's partnership with the Greater DC Diaper Bank eases the burden of affording clean diapers for our parents and others in our community. Kia, mom of one-year-old Quetzal Azai, told her story of what this partnership has meant for her and her family. Many thanks to the Greater DC Diaper Bank for their partnership and for making a difference for so many families in the DMV. You can watch the full story here.
