Driving the nation to the brink of “debt default,” Republican lawmakers in Congress recently pushed through a devastating bill in that would have gut funding for nearly every social safety net program our families count on—including approximately 100,000 child care slots and 200,000 Head Start slots. This bill would also have prevented any new investments in child care for years to come, blocking efforts to make child care more accessible and affordable for families across the country.

Because of actions our communities took, the worst of this proposal was largely averted. However, it is clear that Republican lawmakers are continuing to position themselves to make additional cuts to child care and other programs that support our families. Contact your lawmakers today and tell them: NO CUTS TO CHILD CARE!
