In our efforts to push childcare policy forward in D.C., our outreach to the D.C. Council has been one of our most important tactics. Through meetings with individual Councilmembers and staff, at hearings, in written submissions, and on social media, the members of our coalition have lobbied the D.C. Council over the last two years to move on making childcare in our city more accessible.
Council outreach works. The Council introduced legislation in 2017 to expand childcare access, held hearings, and has introduced a new bill. We want to encourage the Council to keep the momentum for better childcare policy going, and we need your help.
Thank you for your efforts. And for your support in making universal childcare a reality in the city we call home.
