Call your representative today and tell them to make child care a priority in the budget
If you connect with a staffer:
Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent of Representative _______. I’m calling because child care is an important issue for American families. I know that April 6th is the deadline for Rep. _______ to make an appropriations request to the Chairman, and I’d like for him/her to prioritize an increase for child care. Specifically, I hope Rep. _______ will ask for a $1.4 Billion increase in C-C-D-B-G, because child care helps parents go to work and helps children get the good start that they need. Thank you for your time.
If you have to leave a message:
Hi, my name is _______ and I’m a constituent. I urge the Congressman/woman to ask for a $1.4 Billion increase in C-C-D-B-G before the April 6th Appropriations request deadline because child care helps parents work and children get the good start they need.
