Our entire team here at All Our Kin is thinking of you and missing you, and we're here to support you in every way we can.
We want to express profound gratitude to all who joined us in supporting AOK’s very own Bernadette Ngoh, of Trusted Care Family Day Care, who testified in a Senate hearing, last week. Senator Elizabeth Warren convened the hearing which centered on the role of child care in a post-pandemic economy, and discussed the need for a $700 billion investment in child care over the next decade. Bernadette (along with other advocates) delivered powerful testimony that highlighted the need for pivotal change to our child care infrastructure.
In the words of Bernadette, “If we don’t invest in our kids now, then we are creating a problem down the line. Early childhood education helps everybody. The multiplier effect of caring for a child, enables the parents to work, which will have a long lasting benefit on the economy as a whole.”
There are ways we can all take action! Check out this week’s newsletter for more information on how you can make your voice heard.
As always, we’re sending our thoughts, friendship and love, and look forward to seeing you at an upcoming virtual event.
