SUPPORTING ONE ANOTHER DURING CHALLENGING TIMES
Members have worked together during this Covid crisis in many ways. We have provided one another with both practical, financial and emotional support during these challenging times. We have pooled our funds to make it possible for a member to make a down payment on a lease. In addition, we have reached out to childcare and pre-schools, and early childhood programs city-wide. We have met with organized groups of childcare providers in Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Manhattan, and The Bronx, as well as statewide advocacy organizations. We have met with public officials, at the three levels of government to make our voices heard and make them aware of our needs. We encourage you to read our statement of needed policy changes on our homepage. If you agree, let us know. If we have left something out, please let us know. If you have suggestions for tactics, or ideas for collaboration, please let us know.
