Why We Love the Coalition of Action Center and Why You Should Too!
The NC Childcare Coalition Action Center is a free resource for anyone who wants to advocate for early education issues but does not know where to start. Anyone can join the coalition even parents like you. One great thing about the coalition is that it's a quick and easy way to spread the word about early education issues among friends and family, media and state policy makers. This means there's a greater chance that policy makers and media outlets will hear from real parents like you, resulting in more authentic news coverage and laws. In 2015, as a result of the coalition and it's participants, policy makers increased funds to NC Pre-K and Childcare subsidies and improved subsidy child care rates. This provided greater access to quality childcare for parents in NC. Support the NC Child Care Coalition bymaking a donation or becoming a member. Please spread the word and share this information with parents in your area.To learn more about the child care coalition, make a donation or join, visit their website at www.NCChildCareCoalition.org.
