Local actions

  • In addition, we encourage child care advocates to take action for early learning and child care in their communities by;
  • Tie balloons (purple or green) to your porch or balcony
  • Print off a DIY lawn sign, think about making this a group colouring activity
  • Post a sign on your window or mailbox to show you will vote child care for all
  • Ask your local candidate to take the Candidate Pledge
  • Write an OpEd or Letter to the Editor in advance and seek to get it published on September 14, 2021
