It's time to build a 21st century childcare system.

A system that values child care providers and supports sustainable careers in early care and education.

A system where families can find open, affordable options when they need it and where parents, particularly Black and brown mothers, can pursue their own careers.

A system where happy children learn and grow in healthful, culturally appropriate, and responsive child care settings.

A system defined by inclusive quality standards that are rooted in parents’ goals for their child’s bright future.

Our vision is possible. 

Community Change Action is building the movement for child care justice alongside parents, providers, and grassroots partner organizations. When we speak out together, we can win big–from $50 billion in COVID-19 relief funding to an executive order supporting affordable care and quality jobs for care workers. 

Together, our voices will rise, and together, we will win the child care system we all deserve.

Case Studies

Our care system is in crisis, but our care movement is stronger than ever.
