We invite you to partner with those noted above for a Child Care Advocacy Day!

In order for us to be successful securing more services for families and children, we must work together, collect the data, and educate our elected officials about the past successes we have had, but of huge unmet need that still must be addressed.

In the morning we will hear from experts about what Governor-elect has proposed in his January budget.  We then will have time to ask questions and discuss our collective strategy for meeting with legislators in the afternoon.  The legislative meeting times will be set up and you simply need to share with us who you would like to meet with, i.e., your elected representatives.  It is encouraged that if you have district specific information relevant to a specific legislator, bring it.  

Finally, in the afternoon, we have scheduled for legislators and those interested, a showing of the child care documentary No Small Matter.  This showing is the first major theatrical documentary to kick start the public conversation about early care and education.
