Take Action: Urge Your Senators to Invest in Child Care Now!

The Senate released a reconciliation framework that includes no funding for child care. Investing in high-quality childcare is one of the most effective ways to break the cycle of poverty, boost our economy, and keep parents employed while ensuring children develop the skills they need for success in school and life. Children and families thrive when we create conditions that support their well-being. 

By expanding access to high quality child care for working families, investment in child care and early education would help promote greater economic security and reduce parental stress, depression, and isolation, and thereby reduce the risk factors that create the potential for child abuse and neglect.

Congress must act now to invest in the child care system. Reach out to your Senators TODAY and urge them to include child care in the reconciliation package.
