Advocacy (Action Center)

Having high-quality child care that is accessible and affordable for Western New Yorkers is important. We need it so local parents and guardians can go to work each day and our economy can continue to grow. It’s our job to be advocates for WNY children.

How Can You Become an Advocate?

Tell your story

As a parent, does having access to high-quality, affordable care allow you to support your family? As an employer, do your employees depend on quality care to come to work each day? Tell us how important it is. Did a lack of child care, or the overwhelming cost of it, cause you to lose your job? We want to know your story.

Contact your legislators

Do you think it’s infuriating that child care costs more than college in Erie County? So do we. Let your legislators know exactly how you feel, and why quality, affordable, accessible child care is so important.
