Re-Unite Immigrant Families!
There still are well over 1,000 children who were torn away from their undocumented families recently and have been put in detention all over the U.S., with no push by the Government to get them back together again. At the 700 June 30 protests the people spoke, saying that this cruel and harmful situation must end now. Please keep the pressure up on Congress and the Administration to hire professionals who will streamline the work with parents and families to be RE-UNITED with their children more quickly.
Continue Support for Child Care and Head Start Funding!
Please ask your Senators and Representative to fulfill the promise of the bipartisan budget deal to continue in the FY19 Appropriations for FY 2019 the agreed-upon amount of $2.9 billion for CCDBG funding, and continue the increase in Head Start funding.
Register and Vote!
VOTE in your Primary and November elections! Volunteer to help your favorite candidate for Representative, as all are up for reelection on November 6, 2018. Please support candidates who will understand the importance of reducing military budgets and instead support children and families. PLEASE encourage everyone to vote. We, our family and friends must vote, as the results will have a major impact on our country and communities, for the next two years until 2020. Get out the vote! Child care programs should do what they can to encourage registration and voting among both employees and parents.
