Tell Congress: Childcare is Essential

Stand with the Workers Center for Racial Justice (WCRJ) as we send a clear message to Congress: Childcare is essential. In partnership with Community Change Action, we’re calling on the U.S. Senate to prioritize equitable funding to childcare in the next COVID-19 relief package. 


Since the start of the pandemic, the federal government has allocated more than $500 billion to bail out big businesses, and only $3.5 billion to support childcare for families. The U.S. childcare sector needs $10 billion each month in order to recover and help parents get back to work — otherwise we could permanently lose 4.5 million childcare slots that our families depend on. 


Join us as we call on Senate leaders to include the Child Care is Essential Act ($50 billion) in the relief package and help providers keep their doors open so families can get back on their feet.


Hear from an early childhood development expert and WCRJ supporter on why child care is essential to our children, families, workforce, and communities:


It takes just a couple of minutes to demand that the Senate include $50 billion in funding to childcare in the next COVID-19 relief package. Act now.
