ACTION ALERT: Open Now to Help #FundChildCare

Help Us Protect Child Care Centers & Employees NOW!

TOMORROW, Monday, March 23 at 10am…please be sure to help us let your Senators and Congressman know that you support their vote for a $50B stimulus package to save child care centers from closing forever. 93% of all licensed childcare centers are small businesses that cannot sustain themselves through this crisis for more than 2-4 weeks. We recommend that all business leaders post this on social media encouraging your employees and supporters to join in.

Why does Congress need to #FundChildCare in the emergency stimulus package?

• To protect the health and safety of essential workers and their children

• To support small businesses

• To make sure child care programs exist in the recovery

• To prevent tens of thousands of workers from losing their jobs

• To keep the child care industry from collapsing.

• To help American families

• To stabilize an essential service

• To stimulate consumer spending

• To provide the quality care children and families need, now and in the future

On Monday, March 23 from 10:00 am ET, tell it to Congress.
