Kids can’t vote, and they don’t give money to political candidates. That’s why we need you.
Whether it’s sending an email message to your member of Congress, tweeting at them or
showing up to a town hall meeting to ask your lawmakers to invest in kids, you can make a real difference for kids!
Now that we know who will represent us in Congress, we need to ensure that they make investing in high-quality early childhood education a priority. Programs like preschool, high-quality child care and voluntary home visiting transform children’s lives.
Last year, 5.4 million children under age 5, died from preventable causes. Unfortunately, President Trump’s budget proposed cutting funding for programs that would help save children’s lives. Urge Congress to reject these cuts so more children can survive and thrive!
In a majority of states, child care costs more than in-state college tuition. A bill in Congress called the Child Care for Working Families Act (S.1806 | H.R.3773) would expand high-quality affordable child care and preschool programs. Urge your members of Congress to cosponsor the Child Care for Working Families Act today!
