Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be in Tulsa with local billionaire philanthropist George Kaiser on Monday to announce the kickoff of the "Talking is Teaching" campaign, a partnership with the Too Small to Fail Initiative aimed at helping parents and caregivers of children ages birth to 5 prepare for success.

The partnership is a communitywide effort by the George Kaiser Family Foundation, CAP Tulsa, Tulsa Educare and Too Small to Fail — a joint initiative of Next Generation and the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation — to empower parents and caregivers to boost the brain development and vocabularies of young children by increasing the number of words they hear spoken to them each day.

The announcement will take place at 2:30 p.m. Monday at Educare No. 2, 3420 N. Peoria Ave. It is not open to the public.
