Right now, Congress is in the final days of negotiating the next stimulus package where they will decide the fate of child care.This is the final stretch and we need you shouting your support for child care as we work to get this over the finish line. Our most vulnerable children and families are suffering and a loss of child care will be devastating to them. Ohio cannot afford to lose the critical support that child care provides as more and more families begin to return to work and are in need of reliable child care.
This is why we are asking you to take a few minutes out of your day RIGHT NOW to contact your members of Congress about prioritizing child care in the next stimulus package. Even if you have already reached out, we need you to keep pushing the message.
Here’s how you can help:
