On June 22, 2022, HuffPost published an article detailing the need for attention to the child care crisis happening in our country. Detailing the history of the movement to federally fund child care as well as the opportunities and barriers that exist today, the article makes a compelling case for additional advocacy on this issue.
As mentioned in the article, Senators Patty Murray (D-WA) and Tim Kaine (D-VA) have released a revised Child Care and Preschool Reconciliation Proposal that would make critical investments in the Child Care and Development Block Grant and help more than a million families to access quality care and early learning opportunities for their children.
It’s not too late: Congress must not pass a reconciliation package that doesn’t address the economic needs of children and families. Contact your Senators today to urge them use this important opportunity to invest in our children and our future.
