In partnership with Childcare Changemakers, on Monday, May 8th, child care providers, parents, and families across the country are hosting a "Day without Child Care". Join AISJ & TAMCC for a virtual town hall meeting to discuss the value of child care and the critical role it plays in our economy and the lives of children and families. For generations, we have been fighting for equitable access to affordable child care and better pay and working conditions for providers, but our needs are still not being met. So on May 8th, we’re taking action: some child care providers, with the support of the families they serve, are shutting their doors, some are calling out sick or closing down early, and all of us are standing in solidarity to draw attention to the national crisis that our childcare system is in. 

On a "Day without Child Care" we pledge to put the spotlight on the true cost of care and demand the funding we need for a 21st century child care system. Our demands include 

  • An equitable child care system, built on racial and gender justice 
  • Thriving wages for child care providers 
  • Affordable child care for all families.
