- Protect Families and End the Government Shutdown
For the past several weeks, the government has remained partially shutdown which could impact the health and financial stability for millions of working families. If the administration and Congress don't reach an agreement to reopen the government soon, more services will be affected and millions of families may not have access to healthy food or be able to afford child care and may have trouble making ends meet.Now is the time to tell Congress and the president to come together to reach an agreement to reopen the government and ensure these programs continue to support families.
- Thank Legislators for Making Young Children a Priority in Alaska
Children need support from the entire community to succeed in school and life. Thank your legislator for their continued support of critical early care and education in Alaska and for being a voice for our children.
- Support Child Care for Working Families
Child care plays an important role in Alaska's economy, helping to generate more than 1,800 jobs and $2.2 million in income annually. Yet, on average, thousands of working families pay more for child care than they do for mortgage or rent, transportation, or even food every month. Ask your legislator to support child care for working families in the upcoming legislative session.
