You are your child’s first advocate. Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, or guardian, you are your child’s voice; you help to protect them and keep them safe, to make sure they get everything out of life that they need and deserve.
We’re asking all parents and guardians of children to become an advocate.
What can you do?
Tell your story: Does having quality, affordable, accessible child care allow you to go to work every 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.
Join Child Care Resource Network’s advocacy efforts: Interested in attending a meeting with your local Senator? Want to sign our campaign to make high-quality child care a basic right for all children? By working with CCRN as a local advocate, you’ll get to make a real difference in our community.
