Yesterday was the national day of action on child care! If you called your elected officials -- THANK YOU! If you missed it, that's okay! You can still make a difference.
Our friends from across the nation, including Child Care Aware of America, Child Care Works, NAEYC, CLASP, NWLC, NAFCC, NBCDI, YWCA, and ZERO TO THREE called in and we need your voice for Native children!
Even if you missed yesterday's national day of action, please take a few minutes today and call your representatives and request that the appropriations chairman increase funding for the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG) by $1.4 billion in the FY 2018 appropriations bill.
Without this additional funding, states will not be able to fully implement the safety, health, and other reforms in the CCDBG Act of 2014 while maintaining the current number of children served. Congress needs to hear about the importance of funding direct child care assistance through CCDBG from voters like you!
The call only takes 2 minutes! Follow our step-by-step guide below:
