Dear Jessica,,


For Women’s History Month, this year’s theme honors the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers and recognizes the endless ways women continue to provide both healing and hope. And while we at All Our Kin certainly aim to lift the voices of women all year long, this is a time that calls for extra love and support for the women around us — especially our family child care providers.


We’re grateful to work alongside you each day to elevate family child care and bring it to the spotlight! All Our Kin recently partnered with Robin Hood Foundation and Ed Trust at a press conference to release the results of their latest poll. It shows that over 60% of New Yorkers support increased investment in child care. Our very own Shanette Linton, the owner of Little Leaders Group Family Day Care in the Bronx, spoke on behalf of family child care educators and was featured in a video sharing the role home-based care plays in the lives of children and families.


Throughout the month, there are many ways that you can support the future of child care. Our collective voices have the power to reimagine what's possible. Check out this week’s newsletter for opportunities to get involved locally or reach out to our Communications Team at communications@allourkin.org to learn more.


Sending you our friendship and loving support.


In Solidarity,

The All Our Kin Team

Testify at the New York City Council Budget Hearing

In addition to the New York State budget, New York City has its separate budget — decided on by the Mayor and the City Council every year. The City Council will host hearings throughout the month to hear what New Yorkers want to see in the budget. This is another opportunity to tell elected officials that they need to prioritize child care! If you would like to sign up to speak in a City Council hearing or submit written comments, click below. Choose either the Education or Economic Development hearings to speak about the importance of family child care.


And remember, we are always here to help! Email our New York Policy Director Steven Morales at steven@allourkin.org, or call 718-739-1875 with any questions or assistance.
