2021 Child Care & End Child Poverty in CA Virtual Advocacy Day- This Week!
We invite you to partner with those noted above for a Child Care & End Child Poverty in CA
VIRTUAL Advocacy Day!
On January, 21 2021, we're coming together as advocates--child care, food programs, safety net, and anti-poverty champions--for our “Child Care and End Child Poverty CA Advocacy Day.” Our landscape has shifted significantly. Let's raise our unified voices in support of California's kids and families. The needs are urgent and we want to provide both immediate relief and solutions to build back better.  On January 21st, we'll advocate for budget proposals that keep families fed, keep child care providers open, and commit to lifting families out of poverty. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, unmet need is growing exponentially, yet California is facing an unprecedented budget deficit: we need our decision makers in Sacramento to hear from the field on the impact of this pandemic, and what supports need to be improved during recovery. Don't miss this impactful day of action!
