Putting Families First: The Movement for Child Care and Early Learning

by Cristina Rayas | October 16, 2017 5:14 pm

Let’s put families first – with the voices of parents, child care givers, and organizers, we will strengthen the power of our communities, and give the most vulnerable members of our society a chance to thrive.

Women (disproportionately women of color) comprise 95% of the child care field, with a median wage of only $10.58/hr. That’s barely enough to raise a mother with two children above the poverty line. Together, let’s put families first – with the voices of parents, child care givers, and organizers, we will strengthen the power of our communities, and give the most vulnerable members of our society a chance to thrive.
