Annika List

Program & Research Assistant

She, Her, Hers


I’m a member of the Young Children & Their Families team, working on EC-LINC, Early Relational Health, and Prenatal to Three Initiatives.

I do this work because

I believe in uplifting community voices and improving early childhood systems to create an equitable future for children and their families.

I am most proud of

Supporting the creation of a $1.7 billion request for Head Start programs in the COVID-19 Relief Bill, which involved taking on the initiative of reaching out to schools to hear their need and then advocating that need to Congressional staffers.

When the day is done

I enjoy meeting up with friends to explore the city or getting cozy with a cup of coffee and a good fiction book.
