Advocacy Action Center

Advocacy is a way to share your story to help children. Parents, child care providers and employers need to tell their personal story. Quality child care is needed to make a strong community. Stay connected to make a difference!

Try these ideas for sharing your story with state and local representatives they want to hear what you have to say…

 

Early care and education is defined as high quality services for all children from birth to five years.
