This Event Has Ended
Child Care Aware® of America (CCAoA) and Child Care Works (CCW) sponsored more than 40 parents (or grandparents and other relatives) to join the Policy Summit via the Family Advocacy Summit. The sponsorship included travel, room and board, and conference registration.
As part of this, CCAoA and Child Care Works family advocates received training and guidance on advocating for child care policies with their members of Congress, how to tell their personal child care story, and more. Attendees then met with their Congressional representatives during our Day on the Hill event, which starts on Tuesday, April 25 at 8:30 a.m. They advocated for the necessary policy initiatives needed from Congress to bring safe, affordable, high-quality child care to families across the country. They also had the opportunity to network with each other and share stories and best practices from around the country.
