If you want to work to ensure every child receives the high-quality, affordable care they deserve, join JUFJ's Under 3 DC Working Group!
Every child in DC, regardless of their race, family wealth, or zip code, should have access to high quality and affordable early childhood education provided by early childhood educators who are paid fairly. But right now, early childhood educators – mostly Black and Brown women – are underpaid and their jobs are unstable, while most families still can’t afford the childcare their children need. Join JUFJ to learn about the state of childcare in DC, the Birth-to-Three Law, and the continued challenges facing childcare, and what you can do to improve teacher pay and the affordability of childcare.
Family is absolutely central to Judaism, from centuries of law and wisdom on raising our children to ancient guidelines for respecting our elders. All families, regardless of household income or family structure, should have the resources they need to thrive. But Mayor Bowser is proposing to cut tens of millions of dollars from the portion of the DC budget that helps pay childcare providers a fair wage.
