Contact Lawmakers

Kids can’t vote, and they don’t give money to political candidates. That’s why we need you.

Whether it’s sending an email message to your member of Congress, tweeting at them or
showing up to a town hall meeting to ask your lawmakers to invest in kids, you can make a real difference for kids!

Invest in Quality Child Care

Urge Congress to Expand Affordable Child Care for Working Families

Urge your members of Congress to cosponsor the Child Care for Working Families Act today!
