The federal government supports many programs that benefit all Americans, including child care, Head Start and Early Head Start, Title I, after school programs.
Ask your member of Congress to support a balanced approach to deficit reduction that does not include further cuts to child care, Head Start and Early Head Start.
For child care specifically, these cuts will mean a loss of 80,000 children and for Head Start a loss of 100,000 children.
Call, Tweet, or Facebook your Members of Congress TODAY to let them know that programs, including child care and Early Head Start, have already done their part to help reduce the deficit – it’s now time for a balanced approach!
