Thank you for joining us for our 2020 Tuesdays for Tots campaign! We loved spending Tuesdays with you as we all worked together to navigate the COVID-19 crisis and do everything we can to support young children, their families, and their educators.
Advocating for policies to support children is critical both in times of crisis and otherwise. By making your voice heard and taking action, you can help make sure that we all come out stronger on the other side of this crisis.
All of our Tuesdays for Tots webinars and other materials can be found here, so please keep using these resources to help you be a big voice for babies!

Tuesday, June 23rd – Take action for child care!
Take action for child care today! On Wednesday, June 24th at 10am, the NC House Health Committee will hear a presentation from advocates and providers on the status of child care during the COVID-19 crisis. Please call and email your legislators today to share with them how this crisis is affecting you. Policymakers need to hear from their constituents that child care is essential and that this issue is impacting the local communities that they represent.
