We need your help! Please contact Senator Manchin today!
Despite having broad public support and being a huge need for West Virginia families, Congress is refusing to take action to help working families have affordable, quality child care! Working parents need to know that their children are safe and nurtured while they are on the job, and they need to have childcare that they can afford! Unfortunately the cost of child care in WV is more than college tuition, and families can't afford it.
Right now, Congress is working on the economic reconciliation package to address inflation, which should include vital investments in Child Care and Early Learning. Critical investments are needed to address the ongoing child care crisis and lower costs for families. However, recent reports suggest that lawmakers are considering abandoning child care and moving forward with legislation without it.
We cannot let that happen.
The economic package currently being negotiated is the only viable opportunity to secure the funding required to support a strong, stable early learning system in America and lower costs for families at this critical moment.
Please contact Senator Manchin and tell him to vote YES on child care, so parents don't have to choose between working and caring for their children.
