In response to news reports that the U.S. government will deport more than a dozen children and their parents currently held at a family detention center in Texas, Santiago Mueckay, Federal Governments Relations Manager at Save the Children Action Network (SCAN), issued the following statement on behalf of SCAN
Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) applauds the Colorado General Assembly for passing House Bill 20B-1002: Emergency Relief Programs for the Child Care Sector. Not only will the bill help to sustain and protect Colorado’s existing child care providers through the creation of a Child Care Sustainability Grant Program, but it will also work to rebuild Colorado’s child care industry – which is suffering severely from COVID-related closures – through a new Emerging and Expanding Child Care Grant Program. The bill passed with strong bipartisan support in the House and Senate.
Save the Children Action Network (SCAN) is proud to endorse Proposition 2 – the Library and Early Childhood Education Millage – in New Orleans. Proposition 2 would authorize city government to levy a special property tax for 20 years, generating an estimated one and a half million dollars for early childhood education programs in 2021.
Voting "yes" on Proposition EE will not only ensure that kids in Colorado are given the opportunity to thrive and succeed, but it would also help make Colorado a nationwide leader in early education.
New Orleans parents are hungry for their children to get the kind of jump start on their education that experts deem crucial. But they can't afford to pay for it.
A vote to fund early education is a vote for Colorado's future. Please vote this election, and vote YES on Prop. EE!
