We All Care about Child Care! Week of Action
The week of April 15, SCAN is organizing a week of action in support of the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG).
CCDBG is a grant provided to states and territories to provide high quality child care to low- and middle-income working families.
We are organizing around the theme, “We all care about child care.”
Our week of action will enable us to increase awareness and inspire action in support of funding for CCDBG.
The goals of the week of action are:
Raise awareness of the importance of high-quality child care and
CCDBG’s role in facilitating that access
Encourage Congress to support greater investment in CCDBG
Develop new or enhance existing partnerships with local community groups
Good organizing takes good planning.
