Take Action! Be a BIG VOICE for Little Kids

Over the next couple of weeks, you will have the opportunity to take action on some very important child care and home visiting legislation.  Here’s what is happening:

Home Visiting

  • March 12th will be a National Day of Action to support the reauthorization of the Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV), which must happen by September 30.
  • On the Day of Action, we will ask you to call your members of Congress and tweet and post your support for MIECHV on social media.
  • Next week, ZERO TO THREE and our partner organizations will be sending out sample social media posts, e-blasts, and links to find the Twitter handles of your members of Congress.

      Child Care

  • As early as next week, your Senators will vote to reauthorize the Child Care and Development Block Grant (CCDBG). If it passes, this victory will be an important           step in building a strong early learning system.
  • CCDBG was last reauthorized nearly 20 years ago.  Much has changed since then, but the fundamental importance of child care funding has not.
  •  We will need your voices to help pass CCDBG reauthorization in the Senate!
