Every Wednesday through the month of September, we’re asking you to join us in urging Congress to #SaveChildCare by ensuring providers receive the emergency stabilization funding they need to remain in business through the recovery – and beyond.
Here’s what you need to know for Wednesday, September 16th:
Did you know that 70% of parents have reported that their child care programs either have closed or are operating at reduced capacity or hours? While some parents have the option to work remotely, 1 in 4 parents cannot return to work in person without child care.
Tweet, call, and email your lawmakers and let them know that this is not sustainable for America’s working parents.
We’ve put together a few social graphics and tweets you can use, along with proposed call script and email language for contacting members of Congress. You can find those in this Google Doc to use throughout the day today. We’ve also created links through the Child Care Relief action center/Social Press Kit to allow for direct tweets, emails and calls to Congress.
